Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This guide to survival is a combination of sensible as well as outrageous suggestions to boys about how to be prepared for anything, anywhere that comes their way. More than 50 chapters are featured, ranging in page lengths from one to four pages. Some of the more practical chapters focus on "How to Plan a Group Expedition," "How to Survive a Shark Attack," or "How to Build a Survival Shelter," while the more unorthodox—and usually more humorous sections—explain to how to "Survive the Bubonic Plague," Survive a Visit From an Abominable Snowman," or "Survive an Alien Invasion." The humor is subtle and appropriate throughout and there are a variety of solid tips that may well aid young men who find themselves involved in a variety of outdoor activities. The illustrations—pen on paper—are realistic and typically show aspects of how some of the advice might look when completed ("How to Tie a Quick-Release Knot"). This is a fun and fast read for boys—or girls interested in the outdoors—looking for useful ideas about surviving in the world. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.

    THE BOYS' BOOK OF SURVIVAL is a uniquely comedic book that can help young boys face any situation - from a zombie invasion, to a school dance, to landing an airplane.

    There are many educational tips in this book that can be used in real life if one every got lost or stuck in a forest or was in any other dire situation. There are also impractical, yet funny, tips on how to survive alien invasions and disastrous pimples.

    Guy Campbell writes witty and useful tips that will keep the reader wanting more. This book is a very quick read and the great illustrations by Simon Ecob only enhance the book's overall satisfaction.

    And don't think that this book is only useful for boys; being an 18-year-old girl, I found this book very helpful, as well. I learned how to survive many dangerous situations, such as walking into quicksand or confronting a bear.

    No matter your age or gender, this is one fast and funny read.

    This title is a Scholastic Books publication. It maintains the high standards of that publisher. The content is factual, there is subtle humor that I enjoyed, despite being an adult and female. In fact, the book would be of interest to many young women and girls as well as boys. This book is female-friendly! It does not portray anything as being unsuitable for females! I particularly enjoyed the retro-style of the illustrations by artist and graphic novelist Simon Ecob. They are fastidiously detailed, and fun to look at, as well as informative (the latter is the actual intent). At first I thought this was an old book, out of date, because of the lettering and cover design. That was not true at all though! This was a fun, and ultimately educational book. It would be a great gift, because young men and women could keep it on a book shelf and get value from it as a quick reference source, as a starting point, or if the internet didn't happen to be available.
