Review:

Praise for The Daring Book for Girls

'Gung-ho girly advice…the boys had their Dangerous book, now this one is for us'
Good Housekeeping

'I can't imagine not wanting to get stuck in to The Daring Book for Girls. It's an admirable project'
Jenny Diski, Sunday Times

'The authors mix inspiring tales of girls who made good . . . with a scrap bag of how-tos for girlish activities . . . The Daring Book for Girls keeps . . . practical knowledge from getting drowned in the techno-flow' The New York Times

'We've had The Dangerous Book for Boys - now it's our turn. Refreshingly, it's not about lipstick tips, but pioneering women who inspire us' Glamour

About the Author:

Andrea Buchanan is the mother of a daughter and a son, both of whom are equally daring. Before she was a writer, she was a pianist who once performed a solo concert at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall. This is her fifth book.

Miriam Peskowitz is the mother of two girls, including an eight-year-old who climbs trees and leads spy missions in the backyard. She has been a camp counselor, an historian, a blogger, a musician, a professor, and is the author of several books, including The Truth Behind the Mommy Wars.
