Hey, Boys!

Want to have some fun? Maybe learn how to land an airplane in an emergency? Or fight off an alligator? Escape from being tied up? How about taking a ride on one of America's scariest roller coasters? Learn how to make fake blood or turn a real bone into a pretzel. What if you could find out how to identify some of the world's most horrifying creatures? Or learn the secret of making a blockbuster movie? What about guessing the top 11 greatest moments in sports history? Find buried treasure? And once you've found the treasure, find out just how much it would cost you to buy one of the world's most expensive cars.

You'll find all this―and much more―over 250 pages of the biggest, baddest, and best information on just about everything. Plus we've placed a special, mind-bending, solve-the-code puzzle on random pages throughout the book that will lead you to a really cool solution! Now, that's fun!

About the Author:

Marc Aronson is an author, editor, publisher, speaker, historian, and book producer. His mission is to inspire young people to ask questions, to look around, behind, and inside of the stories the world tells us. He writes a monthly column for School Library Journal on nonfiction for younger readers, and frequently speaks about boys and reading. Marc's books have been awarded the Robert F. Sibert Award for the best in children's nonfiction and selected as a New York Times Notable Book and a School Library Journal best book. In 2006, he was given the ALAN Award by NCTE for service to teenagers, and was named the local spokesman for the History Channel's Save Our History program. He lives with his wife and two sons in Maplewood, New Jersey.

H. P. Newquist has authored more than a dozen books for both children and adults, including the critically acclaimed The Great Brain Book (Scholastic, 2005). To prepare for For Boys Only, Mr. Newquist went scuba diving with sharks in Australia, climbed the Great Pyramid in Egypt, drove some really fast cars, learned a few magic tricks, and read more books than he can count.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"That is so interesting."

"Wow!"

"I didn’t know that."

How many times have you said these things, when you landed on a neat Web site, or glanced at a magazine? Harvey and I are writers who love discovering new things. We thought it would be fun to have a book about the most interesting stuff we could find. Not a record book with endless tables of facts. We wanted a book that would be as filled with adventure and the unexpected, as all the snakes, and battles, and sports cars, and ridiculously poisonous dart frogs we talk about. This is a book to get lost in, and find your own way out—and don’t be sure that when you’ve read a page once, you’ve seen all that’s there. Look again, look back, look ahead! There are things here to do, to see, to think about; codes to break, puzzles to solve, even mysteries we couldn’t figure out, which we hope you can. And while you do all that, we’re gathering even more amazing entries for next time.—MA

Cool stuff is all around you—adventure, sports, animals, magic, warriors, movies, video games, and even danger. A lot of it you learn about in school and at home. But sometimes you just want the really good parts and nothing else; you don’t want to sit through the boring junk. Marc and I know that—it’s the way we’ve felt ever since we were kids. So when we wrote this book, we made sure it would have only the best stuff. We skipped everything else. And on those occasions where we had different ideas on what was the very best, we put it all in to let you decide. So there’s something to do, mind-boggling to figure out, and cool to learn on every page. We’ve got bloodthirsty barbarians, sports heroes, vicious predators, ancient mysteries, and daredevils all over this book. And that’s just the beginning . It’s a big world out there, with a lot of amazing things for you to explore. Welcome to the coolest place to start.—HPN
