RED FLAGS: What Every Girl Should Look Out For…

Yolanda Nave, Author . Bloomsbury $7.95 (64p) ISBN 978-1-58234-844-5

This illustrated gift book is a gentle, humorous wake-up call for lovestruck friends and family members who are blind to their partners' faults. The friendly text provides encouragement while the free-spirited drawings highlight the boyfriend behaviors that should send up red flags. The charming illustrations encompass a variety of comic scenarios; in one, a boy pointedly stares at a girl's breasts while saying "It's your MIND I'm attracted to," and in another, a boy caught surfing adult Web sites says to his girlfriend, "Chill out. It's not 'pornography.' It's ART"). Readers can use the red flag stickers provided to flag the situations that seem familiar, and those who are buying this for a friend will appreciate the clever packaging (the back cover folds over, turning the book into a convenient mailer).
