Great book for all things boy-related. It's the type of book they'll want to borrow again & again.

This book is only Dangerous, if you think knowledge is dangerous. Otherwise it is simply an encyclopedia of how to do things aimed at boys. This would be an excellent book for a classroom library, or for the bathroom or guestroom of a home with boys.
