From the jury’s statement, the Norwegian Book Prize
“A superb, impeccable book that will hopefully be read by many people. (…) There’s something so wonderful about the tone. Gentle, inviting, sympathetic, disarming. Smart, cool, and wise. But never admonishing or finger-wagging.”
Trine Saugestad Hatlen, VG, 6/6 stars
“Sparklingly good! (…) The visual design is a crucial part of what makes the book a good experience. The appealing, clear design uses colours to make the facts stand out, making the book easy to read. Magnhild Winsnes’s illustrations are excellent: The drawings are lively and colourful and illustrate physiology, emotions and mental aspects in a clear, fun way.”
Maja Troberg Djuve, Dagbladet, 5/6 stars
From the authors behind the international success’
The Wonder Down Under and The Girl Book.
Puberty is a nerve-racking, incredible time!
It’s happening! Your body is changing, your hormones are taking control, and your brain is undergoing a kind of reorganisation. This process is called puberty, and it’s the most dramatic transformation you’ll ever experience – yet it’s also the most normal thing in the world.
Most boys have questions about puberty. The authors have answered thousands of them, in sex education classes and at the doctor’s office: When will I get a beard? Is my penis normal? How do I find happiness again after a heartbreak? How do people have sex? Brochmann and Dahl have written The Boy Book to give boys answers they can rely on, a guide to help them on their way to adulthood.
In their books, The Boy Book, The Girl Book, and The Wonder Down Under, Brochmann and Dahl share their mission to empower young people through better sex education. They’re helping a new generation make informed choices about their bodies and sexual well-being. And because some boys enter puberty early and others late, this book is suited for boys from 10 to 18 years of age.
