Dominate age eight with a trove of earth-shattering secrets, jokes, and tips they won’t teach you in school!

What’s the best gift for a kid who’s turned eight? Everything they need to know! Eight is a banner year in every kid’s life. It’s when they’re finally granted “big kid” status. That means more freedom and responsibility. It also means there’s a ton of stuff to learn, and some of it’s pretty important. Inside this hilarious handbook is the information kids need to make eight one of the best years of their lives—from the fun (How to Win Halloween), to the serious (How to Get Germs Before They Get You) and the downright disgusting (How to Make Boogers You Can Eat).


"Miller discusses a vast amount of topics in a straightforward yet casually conversational manner. . . a welcome supplement for kids who need to learn that it is okay to get mad or when to call 911 versus simply reach for a Band-Aid."
School Library Connection
"There aren’t many advice books written for this age, so this helpful, fun, doodle-filled offering will make any eight-year-old feel ready to tackle life."
