Nine-Year-Old Boy Writes Book On How To Talk To Girls

samzenpus posted more than 5 years ago | from the 3rd-grade-best-seller dept.

Idle 9

A creative writing project in a nine-year-old's class has turned into a 46-page hardcover book called "How to Talk to Girls." The original handwritten pamphlet was a bestseller at a school book fair where it sold for $5 a copy. The book fair fame eventually got Alec Greven an invitation to be on a local TV show and a publishing deal with HarperCollins. "It is easy to spot pretty girls because they have big earrings, fancy dresses and all the jewellery," he writes in chapter three. "Pretty girls are like cars that need a lot of oil." I'm sure Alec's book already has a dozen four-star reviews on Amazon.

This is a must read for you. Especially those of you that don't get out much! Hell some of you may not have even talked to a girl since you were 9, besides of course your mother or grandma whose basement you reside in.

Considering that I can publish a book about driving trucks without having actually drived one...

In soviet russia, cars make analogies about you.
