About the Book

When Mark Twain wrote the sparky short story "Advice to Little Girls" in 1865, he probably didn't mean for it to be shown to them. Or maybe he did, since we all know Twain was a rascal. Now, author and illustrator Vladimir Radunsky has created a picture book based on Twain's text that adds all the right outlandish touches.

Awards and Reviews

Advice To Little Girls has been selected as one of Brain Pickings' 13 Best Children's, Illustrated, and Picture Books of 2013!

"Crisply satirical and a little subversive, Twain's short, acerbic sendup slyly exhorts little girls to take a calculating approach to manipulating friends, brothers and elders. [...] An elegant curiosity for admirers of Twain, Radunsky or both."

"Radunsky's ink flourishes and adorable, lumpy figures steal the stage."
