No comments

A companion book to “The Dangerous Book For Boys,” Miriam and Andi are thrilled to announce that HarperCollins will be publishing The Daring Book for Girls", a book for any girl with an eye for adventure and a nose for trouble.

Among the contents will be chapters on: what you need for an essential toolkit; five karate moves every girl should know; important women of the last century; ghost stories and rainy day games; famous women spies; how to change a tire; campfire songs; stocks and bonds; making a zip line in your backyard; and more! From HarperCollins: “Amid all of the success of The Dangerous Book for Boys we would occasionally hear ‘where is the Dangerous Book for Girls?” says Margot Schupf, Group SVP & Associate Publisher. “We are thrilled to be partnering with these authors to fill this obvious void in the marketplace and to encourage girls to find fun, adventure and learning in their lives as well.”

The book is due to be out just in time for Christmas — the perfect gift for daring girls of any age (if we do say so ourselves!).
