"Ford, an award-winning library media specialist and speaker, surveys exciting books that will capture the imaginations of boys in grades 3-12, covering nonfiction, graphic novels, mystery and adventure, sports, sci-fi and fantasy, humor, history, books that were made into movies, read aloud titles, and classic works. Each genre chapter includes entries with bibliographic information and brief synopses, teaching tips, and related web connections for authors, organizations, characters, books, museums, and clubs. Some of the suggested titles are not what librarians and teachers would usually consider 'great literature,' but are guaranteed to get boys to read." - Reference & Research Book News
