The Big Book of Boy Stuffby Bart King
Synopses & Reviews
There's this boy. Let's say he's somewhere between nine and thirteenyears old or so. You'd like to see this kid get creative. You'd like tosee him get some exercise. You'd like to see him get out from in frontof the television. And you'd love for him to be motivated enough tofind some stuff to do on his own.
This boy NEEDS The Big Book of BoyStuff!
This thick, durable book includes fascinating chapters on grossstuff, 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. Noboyhood is complete without a copy!
The Big Book ofBoy Stuff has all the important information thatboys just have to know: How can I make a rocket?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?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 aperson?What's that smell? . . . and many, many more!
