A new title in the 7-Day books is The Dangerous Book for Boys by Conn Iggulden and Hal Iggulden. It has a clever premise, what to do on a dull Sunday afternoon and is based on what they did as kids, pre-videos and pre-cell phones. It is all about curiosity and simple adventures. Not all activities should be unsupervised, but there is enough to tweak the interest of the most jaded child. But I personally take them to task for its title—girls take part in the same adventures, have many of the same interests and read the same adventurers’ books. Boys do not have the corner on Harry Potter or The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe or Lord of the Rings. I guess I’ll have to write my own Adventurous Girls Book of Secrets and Fun to balance it all out. Now, who knows what to do when you meet a mountain lion? And how to make papier mache monsters? Those will be in my book.
