Ideal reading for all young girls


Informative and educational for a pre-puberty girl that gives the facts in a fun manner. She was thrilled to receive it and engaged in reading instantly. Clearly hitting the mark with the content.

Excellent read for my daughter


I bought this for my Daughter. She loved it.



Great book for young girls. Highly recommended


Great book with a light hearted take on puberty for young girls. This book cover all things puberty, bullying, cyber safety, health and body image.



Educational with just the right amount of humour


Very informative and the humourous, comic-like illustrations kept my daughter engaged. Eased her anxiety over the changes happening. Has re-read multiple times.



Great details and written age appropriately Highly recommend


Brought this book to help my 10 year understand the changes she is having with her body and how it is completely normal. Brilliantly written with abit of humour.



This book is fantastic!!!


I bought this book for my daughter, once she started to read she couldn't put it down. It helped her understand a lot of changes that have been happening in a way she could understand and relate, I would recommend to anyone who would like to help their child.



Good book for pre puberty


To teach my niece about her body


A bit long and a lot of reading


I bought this for my 9 and 11 yo daughters heading into puberty. It looked fun on the cover and easy to read but found it has a lot of large words etc for this age group Probably suited to teens more I was answering more questions about what words meant and the whole point was to just have them read quietly and contemplate things

Girl stuff 8-12


Really funny 😂 and helpful



Age appropriate.


Bought this for my 11 year old grand daughter. Easy and fun reading that answers a lot of questions that I am sure she would be too embarrassed to ask.

About the Author

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.
