Kid Confidential: An Insider's Guide to Grown-Ups

Kid Confidential: An Insider's Guide to Grown-Ups Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lets face it: Being a kid isnt easy. Compared to adults, kids are inexperienced, powerless, and short. Just as it would be irresponsible to send travelers to a strange city without a map, it would be wrong to let defenseless kids navigate a world inhabited by parents, teachers, and other adults without an in-depth guide to how the older (although not necessarily smarter) half lives. Kid Confidential explores the strangest and most mysterious facets of adult life, such as: What do teachers really talk about in the teachers lounge? And how can adults stand to drink a beverage as disgusting as coffee? With funny black-and-white illustrations, tongue-in-cheek sidebars, and tips for some good-natured trickery throughout, this fully loaded guide will be a “must have” for every kid.
