Boys are Best! by Manuela Olten


Boys are Best! by Manuela Olten

This funny, irreverent story is told from the point of view of two opinionated young boys. The boys think all girls are silly and pointless but they soon learn that they are far from perfect themselves when the issue of ghosts is brought up! Boys Are Best! is a funny yet cautionary tale for young readers and its tongue-in-cheek humour will be enjoyed by all.


This funny and charming book will have you giggling along with your child at its toungue-in-cheek humour. With fantastic, bold and original illustrations, the book will quickly grab the attention of your little one. Eastern Daily Press
