The Girl Book. Nina and Ellen’s guide to puberty
Jenteboka. Nina og Ellens guide til puberteten

What is menstration?
Why do we sweat?
How tall will I be?
When will I develop breasts?

The transition from child to adolescent is not easy. The body is changing, hormones take control and the brain undergoes a kind of reorganising. Adults know all about this, but for someone who is right in the midst of it all, it’s not so easy to understand what is going on.
In The Girl Bookdoctors Nina Brochmann and Ellen Støkken Dahl explain everything you need to know about puberty. Young girls should not have to resort to “googling” to find answers to the most important questions about their bodies. The book is a quality guide from the doctors behind the international success The Wonder Down Under, and who understand a young girl’s body inside and out. They give tips, secrets, stories from real life and good advice to someone who is about to enter into puberty. And because some girls enter into puberty early and others late, this book is written with both in mind, and is suited for girls from 10 to 20 years of age.

‘They have done it again! (…) a smart and fantastic book about things we normally find embarrassing to talk about. (…) The book is also a visual feast, with amazing illustrations. There is not one boring page.’
