The Big Book of Boy Stuff has all the important information that boys just have to know. Collected here for the first time in one place, it holds the answers to these timeless questions:
  • What do I do if I get a bean stuck up my nose?
  • How can I make lightning without killing myself?
  • Where can I find new practical jokes to play on my friends and family?
  • How can I make a rocket?
  • What is the best way to poop outside?
  • How do I tell a girl I like her?
  • Why would I tell a girl I like her?
  • How many mosquitoes does it take to suck all the blood out of a person?
  • What's that smell?
  • And many, many more!

Review:

"Genuinely funny, King covers gliders (how to make them), a q&a about girls, tips for dealing with bullies, ideas for outdoor activities and much more, interspersed with jokes and asides." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"(King) has managed to strike a balance between excitement and safety, goofiness and good information." Vancouver Sun

Review:

"It's fast, often rude, very funny....Adults are liable to appreciate this book every bit as much as typical 'boys.'" The Statesman Journal (Salem, OR)

Synopsis:

There's this boy. Let's say he's somewhere between nine and thirteen years old or so. You'd like to see this kid get creative. You'd like to see him get some exercise. You'd like to see him get out from in front of the television. And you'd love for him to be motivated enough to find some stuff to do on his own. This boy NEEDS The Big Book of Boy Stuff

This thick, durable book includes fascinating chapters on gross stuff, magic, emergencies, fireworks, games, experiments, jokes, activities, insults, pets, flying things, and, of course, duct tape.

This thick, durable book includes fascinating chapters on gross stuff, magic, emergencies, fireworks, games, experiments, jokes, activities, insults, pets, flying things, and, of course, duct tape.

Boys can learn fun experiments such as how to create a Monster in a Box using a shoebox, a flowerpot, and a potato. Next, they can work on building a pneumatic rocket made out of a lip balm tube and air. The sky is truly the limit when it comes to these fun and entertaining projects. No boyhood is complete without a copy
