The Gutsy Girl

written by Caroline Paul and illustrated by Wendy MacNaughton

This little guidebook is chock-full of dangerous derrings-do, snippets of info on various female heroes, helpful information, and bizarre checklists.

It’s an enjoyable read aimed at tween-age girls who are looking for adventure.

“Don’t try this at home!”

I only wish this book had more examples of smaller feats of daring as opposed to crevices in Denali and climbing the Golden Gate bridge…something like getting up in front of a crowd to recite your poetry or standing up to the class bully.  Then again, the title does include the words “Epic Adventure, ” so I suppose those examples wouldn’t fit.

I received this book for free through a  Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.
