Summary

Hi. My name is Lynda Madaras. I write books about growing up. I get tons of letters from boys. They tell me just what they're thinking. They ask questions. Many of the things they say are here in this book. Many of their questions are here, too, along with my answers. So boys like you helped to write this book.

In her uniquely warm and funny style, Lynda Madaras wrote this entirely new book especially for younger boys to give them everything they need to know about the new and exciting changes that are happening to their bodies during puberty.

Illustrated with fresh and funny cartoons, On Your Mark, Get Set, Grow! is the seventh book in the popular "What's Happening to My Body?" series of growing-up books for boys and girls. Praised by parents, teachers, nurses, doctors, and especially kids, the bestselling "What's Happening to My Body?" books for older boys and girls are on the "Best Books for Young Adults" list from the American Library Association and have been translated into 12 languages. Over 2 million copies of the "What's Happening to My Body?" series are in print.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Madaras, who has been teaching and writing about puberty for nearly 30 years, offers boys a companion to her 2003 Ready, Set, Grow for girls, writing with similar verve and consideration for her audience's embarassement and confusion. Along with clear explanations of changes in sexual organs and related topics such as wet dreams and masturbation, she includes chapters on good nutrition, body odor, and shaving stopping well short of the subject of reproduction. An integral part of the book are questions and comments from boys themselves. These are often very specific, covering things boys are unlikely to express aloud, especially to grown-ups. Madaras answers all clearly and with refreshing honesty, defining necessary terms (and clarifying some slang) as she proceeds. As in Ready, Set, Grow, cartoon illustrations leaven the seriousness of the topic, and Madaras maintains a casual tone, making this a prime choice for reassuring readers facing or undergoing change. Boys will come away armed with both facts and an understanding that there's no one right way to move from childhood to the other side.--Zvirin, Stephanie Copyright 2008 Booklist"
