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.

A good read that'll last a long time. lots of stuff to do if you're bored. If I have nothing to do I can refer back to it, and it's also a good conversation starter. Although I would like Bart King to just write a general, gender free "THE BIG BOOK OF FUN STUFF", since he is a very fun writer and would like to see more general stuff by him. One of my favourite points about this book in specific is it isn't long and monotone or sound like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... instructions. His voice is clear and it sounds like the author is just talking to a friend.

This book has fun, creative, and sometimes challenging, ideas for boys (and girls) to try. Need a joke or interesting piece of trivia? It has that, too.
