THE CURIOUS BOY'S BOOK OF ADVENTURE follows the new trend of writing quirky, informative, and entertaining books for young boys that teach the essentials of finding things to do that will keep you out of trouble. Broken down into five categories -- Exploring, Hunting, Experimenting, Building, and Playing -- this handy reference guide presents 100 things to build and do that are fun for all ages.

From bird-watching to fishing, from building a fire without matches to bug-hunting, from making an electromagnet to levitating a ping-pong ball, it's all there. Each of the 100 "hijinks and escapades" comes with a complete list of materials you'll need, step-by-step instructions, any applicable warnings, and a fun and interesting "did you know" section.

This is a great book for boys to share with their friends and fathers, and it's actually something that could be incorporated quite well into a Cub Scout or Boy Scout troop. Most of the activities are quick and easy, and many are definitely useful.
