Publishers Description

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.

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

The Big Book of Boy Stuff has all the important information that boys 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 a person? What's that smell? . . . and many, many more

The veteran of many water-balloon wars, Bart King has twice won the prized "Arrested Development" award from the New York Society of Amateur Psychologists. He has been a middle-school teacher for the past fifteen years. This is his first book, unless you count that other one he wrote. Bart has interviewed hundreds of the country's wisest guys and smartest alecks for the incredible material in The Big Book of Boy Stuff.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Really funny with a lot of entertainment jam-packed into it  Sep 25, 2008
Wow, what a great book! It has tons of experiments, jokes and indoor and outdoor activities that are fun and sometimes educational. Now, it must be admitted that some of the entries are a little gross (see "Pooping and Peeing" on page 74), but it must be admitted that boys find such things terribly funny.

Overall, I found the book to be really funny with a lot of entertainment jam-packed into it. My fifteen-year-old son loves reading me jokes from it, laughing while he tries to get the words out. Please do not take this book too seriously - live a little! I highly recommend this book.
My Previous Review Was Deleted, So Here's Another One...  Aug 5, 2008
Someone purchased this for my 10 year old stepson. He was immediately engrossed. He couldn't stop laughing. some of it is clever. some of it is kid-type of gross. all of it is just plain irrelevant and just another cause behind the dumbing-down of children in the U.S.

If you take the dust jacket off, the word "Physics" is printed on the spine making it really easy for kids, including my stepson, to take to school. A friend came over and saw my stepson reading a "Physics" book and was very impressed. So, one of the "benefits" of this book is to fool people about the reader being smart and enjoying reading when in fact, that couldn't be further from the truth.

Like other reviewers have stated, this book is full of fluff and nothing more.

My stepson's psychological and emotional development has been retarded due to this book. Do we really need more psychologically and emotionally retarded people in this world? ***See Note Below*** This should be the question you ask prior to purchasing this book for your or other people's kids.

This book, along with it's "sister" book for girls, is sexist and ultimately seeks to promote sexist oppression and discrimination. Shortly after reading the bit on cooties, my stepson actually made a statement to the effect of "If all girls have cooties, then what good are they?" Prior to reading this book, he had not thought of girls in this way.

Oh, I know some readers might purchase the book primarily because it might be dangerous and sexist. Well, that's fine with me. You can create your soldiers and your princesses if you'd like. But if you'd like to create children who enjoy reading, think critically, feel good about themselves, and become a part of the world as inclusive, open, and compassionate individuals, THEN DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!

The word "retard" has a specific definition in this context. I am not making an unthinking, uncaring comment about people with mental disabilities.
What a great book!  May 28, 2008
When my son and I traveled over the weekend and he chose to bring The Big Book of Boy Stuff over his electronic games, I was thrilled! I have purchased this book for my 12 year old son and many of my nephews and his friends. Nothing warms my heart more than watching a group of boys surpass the video games and television to huddle with a book. They laugh, they share stories and have a blast. It's that kind of book. Yes, its gross! Yes, it focuses on things than may make a few adults squeamish!I have walked in on many dads reading the book with their sons and laughing hysterically. It's fun. It promotes bonding. And its downright FUNNY. Buy this book!
In spite of all of the rave reviews, I still had my doubts about this book. Yet I finally purchased it for my 10-year-old grandson, and he loves it so much he even took it to school with him! (Considering that it is not a light book, and he already has a backpack full of books, I was really surprised!) I am overjoyed that he is getting so much pleasure out of this book. He has the whole family's attention, trying to guess the answers to riddles, and looking to see just what it is that interests him so much about this book that he can't put it down. What is most amazing is that he has totally ignored his video games since he got it a week ago! When he left for home afer a visit yesterday, his father called out to him, 'Al, don't forget the book.' Like I said, the whole family likes this book! If you are considering this book for a child around ten years of age, don't hesitate to buy it. The reviews are right - He will love it!
Great book for kids who hate books  Mar 18, 2008
This book is funny and engaging- a perfect gift for those boys who are not big readers. I have given it to a number of children who hate to read. This is the first book that they will sit down and actually read w/o prompting. If your child is a better reader and you want something more educational, then get The Dangerous Book for Boys. However, I have found that boys of all ages love this book.
