Great advice for tweens


I bought this for my 10 year old daughter. She is loving it, she finds it easy to read & very informative. I talk through highlights from each section with her first, then check in regularly with her as she reads it.

Girl Stuff - informative and real


My 12yo daughter is thoroughly into this informative guide to girl stuff: even down to completing some of the "lists" at the back of the book. The big sister: Girl Stuff for 12-18 year olds, is next on the purchase order. Thanks Kaz Cooke


Highly recommend this book


Made talking about what could be embarrassing or difficult very easy!!

I would buy this book again


Very informative, but I'm a fun way. Very accessible.


Great book for tween girls!


Easy read. Helps takes the embarrassment away for tween girls.


Great advice for this audience!


My two girls are aged 9 and 11 and there was appropriate info for both of them. Nothing too heavy at this stage. I will buy the teenage one next year for my older daughter.


Absolutley fantastic! My Daughter loves her book!


My Daughter loves having this book to reference whenever she likes, and it's great as a conversation starter on puberty topics when we read it together. I especially love the fact that it's so age appropriate, and trhere's another book for older kids!

Victoria, Australia

perfect for girls


This is well written and perfect for girls 8-12. It has lots of useful information for that age and is a good reference for girls. Topics covered are all relevant and having it in a book form is great resource for girls as not every girl at that age may want to openly discuss these topics, but it can also create open conversation with a trusted adult. Easy to read for girls of that age and my special girl loved the book - she couldn't put it down!!

Kaz Cooke

Kaz Cooke is an Australian author, cartoonist and radio broadcaster.

Her background is in news and feature journalism in Melbourne, Sydney and Darwin. Her career began a month after she left school, in 1981, at The Age newspaper and since then she’s written for heaps of other major daily newspapers (The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian and the Canberra Times) and magazines (including Who Weekly and the Women’s Weekly).

Since becoming a Mum in 1998 she has mainly worked from home writing books in her pyjamas; and still doesn’t know why there were books in her pyjamas (boom, boom). There have been some scuttling forays into radio shows with varying degrees of success (from “this is fun!” to “I’d rather eat my own shins with a fork”). Kaz illustrates her own work with cartoons, since 1983 often featuring Hermoine the Modern Girl.

She continues to write books with her trademark mix of meticulous research and trustworthy information untainted by commercial interests, and blended with her friendly tone, honesty, sharp wit, and pyjamas. Kaz lives in Melbourne with her family and enjoys toast.
