How to Talk to Girls

About the Book

Nine-year-old Alec Greven asks, "Are you smart enough to take over a girl's heart?" Whether you're 8 or 80, this book is for you! Want to know how to score the girl of your dreams? Nine-year-old Alec Greven has a few tips for you:
  • Know your odds.
  • Ask her to be your friend.
  • Show off your skills, like playing soccer, or anything else that you are good at.
  • Dodge troublemakers, or anyone who tries to get in your way.
  • Comb your hair and don't wear sweats. Boys (and men!) of all ages will go back again and again to this guidebook on love and life from this 9 year old guru. Alec's hilarious insights on how to talk to girls, as well as his advice for what to do (and not do) once you win her over ("Don't cheer in front of her or she might ditch you") are smack on target. And of course, every female will want to give this to all the guys she knows! Based on Alec's sharp observations during recess, class and on his own personal experience, HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS will remind all of us to go back to the basics and to stop overanalyzing matters of the heart. HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS features 20+ black and white illustrations by Kei Acedera. Kei will also do the illustrations for Alec's second and third books, about how to deal with your mom and dad, respectively.
