Overview

For Boys Only: The Biggest, Baddest Book Ever by Marc Aronson, HP Newquist, H. P. Newquist

Hey, Boys!

Want to have some fun? Maybe learn how to land an airplane in an emergency? Or fight off an alligator? Escape from being tied up? How about taking a ride on one of America's scariest roller coasters? Learn how to make fake blood or turn a real bone into a pretzel. What if you could find out how to identify some of the world's most horrifying creatures? Or learn the secret of making a blockbuster movie? What about guessing the top 11 greatest moments in sports history? Find buried treasure? And once you've found the treasure, find out just how much it would cost you to buy one of the world's most expensive cars.

You'll find all this—and much more—over 250 pages of the biggest, baddest, and best information on just about everything. Plus we've placed a special, mind-bending, solve-the-code puzzle on random pages throughout the book that will lead you to a really cool solution! Now, that's fun!

Marc Aronson is an author, editor, publisher, speaker, historian, and book producer. His mission is to inspire young people to ask questions, to look around, behind, and inside of the stories the world tells us. He writes a monthly column for School Library Journal on nonfiction for younger readers, and frequently speaks about boys and reading. Marc's books have been awarded the Robert F. Sibert Award for the best in children's nonfiction and selected as a New York Times Notable Book and a School Library Journal best book. In 2006, he was given the ALAN Award by NCTE for service to teenagers, and was named the local spokesman for the History Channel's Save Our History program. He lives with his wife and two sons in Maplewood, New Jersey.

H. P. Newquist has authored more than a dozen books for both children and adults, including the critically acclaimed The Great Brain Book (Scholastic, 2005). To prepare for For Boys Only, Mr. Newquist went scuba diving with sharks in Australia, climbed the Great Pyramid in Egypt, drove some really fast cars, learned a few magic tricks, and read more books than he can count.

I really, really enjoyed this book. I'm a 12-year-old, and 'For Boys Only' had all the cool stuff that I like to read about. I liked the part that told you how to escape if you are ever tied up. Me and some of my friends tried the escape method and it worked so well! This book is so awesome! You've GOT to check it out!

I am also twelve. I am from Newton, and I got this book from the library. i keep it late just so I can read it more. The mroe interesting parts where how to escape tied up and how to land a plane in an emergency. The rest of the book is really good too.

This book is GREAT!! There are tons of random facts that boys will love and information on very "manly "subjects!! There are also lots of How To instructions for cool things like; How To fight a shark and How To make gooblek!! Don't know what gooblek is?? Get this book and you will!!! Your sons will love you for it!!

I purchased this book for my 12 year old son. He really does not enjoy reading so we try to find books that will spark his interest. This book did the trick for him. I could hear him laughing from the other room and then he would come out and share one of the "skills" he just learned about. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a boy (or a girl as well) that would enjoy reading some not-so-common "how to do" stories.

I bought this book for my son about 6 months ago and he continues to enjoy it. He loved it so much he sent an email to the author thanking him for writing it. He wanted to buy 3 other copies for his friends for their 9th birthdays. All the boys are engrossed by it and they are enjoying the challenge of solving all the codes sprinkled throughout the book. It's fun AND educational reading.

My eight year old son received this book as a birthday present and has loved it! It has fun, sometimes gross, facts presented in one page or less, perfect to get boys (his sister too) reading and hold their attention. Anything that encourages kids to read, I am all for. He has now given this same book to three other friends as gifts, and each one thinks it is 'cool'. Be prepared Moms, some of the articles really are yucky :-)

Although the title explicitly states BOYS that doesn't mean girls or adults aren't allowed to read it. It'that the author(s) collected content that he/they thought boys would be interested in. All in all : GREAT BOOK!
