- Comb your hair and don't wear sweats.
- The best choice for most boys is a regular girl. Remember, some pretty girls are coldhearted when it comes to boys. Don't let them get to you.
- You also have to be aware that girls win most of the arguments.
These are just a few bits of advice from fourth-grader Alec Greven, the young author of How to Talk to Girls. In his cute dating guide, Greven relays some of the lessons he's learned on the playground about what works and what doesn't work when dealing with the mysterious creatures of the opposite sex. What started as a pamphlet that Greven sold at his school's book fair for $3 ultimately turned into a four-book deal with HarperCollins, and now Fox is planning on making the book series into a film.
Though the material is obviously entertaining and adorably funny, much of the boy's advice is actually pretty solid! Greven has appeared on Today and Ellen, and he looks like a sharp, well-spoken kid. If the filmmakers can find someone like him, I think this will be an awesome movie.
