"Let's face it, most boys have these built-in motors that if you listen carefully, you can hear (they go "grrrr"). It would be hard to find two more amiable young under-13s for example, than Charles and Alex: they're polite, cheery and civilised, yet give them a garden and they don't turn it into a picnic spot for their cuddly toys, they transform it into a battlefield with all the gory trimmings."

These articles made me laugh!

hehe - pretty good. A whimsical laugh - I think half of me was wishing I could step back in age and join in ...

But I'm convinced a boy's motor goes "grrrr". When our youngest (and only son) was about 16 months old, he would sit in his high chair, with me nose-to-nose with him, and we would growl at each other. Our two daughters, of course, thought we were losing it, until their mother calmly told them we were "male bonding".

Thanks for posting this, Hauser. It brought me to a place of happy memories - if not of my youth, of my son's - and that's as good, if not better.

That book looks like a must have for every boy I ordered it for my 9 year old nephew. I'll just have to make sure my brother gets it instead of my sister-in-law who would like to keep the child in a bubble.

Your post reminds me of a totally cool episode of the Simpsons in which the Springfield Elementary School is divided into separate sections for boys and girls. The girls' section is all flowery and intellectual, and the boys' section is a battlefield of guys running around and unable to sit still. I laughed myself senseless over that one.

Much love,
