Item description for Boys Are Best! by Manuela Olten...
Overview Before they go to sleep at night, two brave boys talk about how boring girls are, with their dolls and their interest in clothes, and how afraid they are of everything, even ghosts, which they hope do not exist.
“Girls are so silly!” That's what two very opinionated little boys have to say, as they make fun of everything female. “They spend all day combing their dolls' hair!” one mocks. And they're “such scaredy cats!” laughs the other. But the guys soon get their comeuppance when it turns out they're the ones who get frightened…not their sister! Manuela Olten's bright, distinctly tongue-in-cheek pictures will have young readers laughing out loud.

Richie's Picks: BOYS ARE BEST! Jun 17, 2008
This brilliant picture book by a German author/illustrator was first published in Zurich in 2004 and was finally released here (by a British publisher) in 2007. The publishing history has caused its failure to attract the attention it deserves. I've very successfully utilized it as a read-aloud with third and fourth graders. It is a laugh-out-loud turnabout tale.
