About the Author:

JoAnn Loulan has been in private practice as a psychotherapist in the San Francisco Bay area. She is a mother, author, and lecturer. She has authored books, chapters, anthologies and articles on topics of sexuality and self-esteem. Her lecturing has taken her all over the U.S., Canada and parts of Europe.
Bonnie Worthen previously worked as a facilitator in women's sexuality groups. She and her husband are currently living in Spain. She is the mother of two adult children.
(JoAnn Gardner-Loulan and Bonnie Lopez Worthen are two of the three original authors.)
Diagram illustrations are by Marcia Quakenbush—the original illustrator and one of the original authors. The new line drawings are by Chris Wold Dyrud of Minneapolis, MN.

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-7. The most obvious change in this revised edition (originally published in 1979 by Volcano Press) is the artwork. The design and the black-and-white line drawings, this time by Chris Wold Dyrud and Marcia Quackenbush, are far more appealing than those in the earlier book. The organization is also much better, with clear subheads setting up answers to questions about such basic, very practical matters as "What do I do when I get my period for the first time?" and "What kind of exercise can I do?" The text has undergone a few changes, too (there's acknowledgement of PMS, for example), though much is the same in its coverage of topics ranging from tampons and cramps to a pelvic exam. New to this edition are a calendar for photocopying and an index (awkwardly positioned before the helpful guide for parents). Unlike Robie Harris' It's Perfectly Normal (1994), the focus here is strictly on menstruation; this is not a book about puberty or an introduction to sexuality. But it's a warmly encouraging book, that tells it like it is for young girls. Stephanie Zvirin
