Uncle John's Bathroom Reader for Girls Only!: Mystery, History, Gossip & Secrets (Uncle John's Bathroom Readers)by Bathroom Readers
Synopses & Reviews
For more than 20 years, Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader has been bringing readers its own quirky brand of fascinating facts and trivia. But weve been saving a secret stash of stories just for girls. Girls will love this amazing collection, from the woman who invented the bulletproof vest to the sharpshooter who charmed the world. Read about pioneering reporters, spies, explorers, secret societies, humor, history, role models, and scandals, including teen millionaires—ten kids who made their own fortunes (and spent it wisely), the not-so-glamorous life of a fashion model, and the princess diaries: horrific tales of intermarriage among royal families. Also included are strange dating customs from around the world, tragic fashion: foot binding in China, neck ringing in Thailand, and more, plus fortune-telling tips through the ages, the recipe for Love Potion #9, the unlikely origins of underwear, and much more.
We locked the bad boys at the BRI in the water closet and let the fairer gender run things for a while. The result: For Girls Only! Youll discover a secret stash of cheeky stories written for girls of all ages (but mostly pre-teens and teens). In what other book would you find fortune-telling tips through the ages, the recipe for Love Potion #9, and the origin of underwear? In no other book in the world! So unlock your inner goddess with . . .
