, $9.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-06-172930-0
The 10-year-old author of How to Talk to Girls
and, most recently, How to Talk to Moms
, now offers insight on fathers. Chapters include “The Two Sides of Dad” (a good side and a bad side—“It totally depends on his mood and your attitude”); “What Dads Like” (“honest, helpful, good kids”); and “The Power of the Father” (“If you are playing chess, Dad won't go easy on you”). While the dad characteristics aren't universal, with Acedera's understated line art and an attractive design, this is a tailor-made gift. All ages. (May)
