The Daring Book for Girls co-author Andi Buchanan (left) saw yesterday’s item on the distaff competitors to The Dangerous Book for Boys and emailed me the inside scoop on the book’s development. “I pitched the book to HarperCollins in mid-May,” she wrote.” I’d figured HarperCollins had a girl book in the works already, but they didn’t until we pitched it.” She says that Daring, which she’s writing with Miriam Peskowitz, “isn’t a pinkified version of the Dangerous book,” but more of a companion piece. (That, and branding rights, are also why it’s not a dangerous book for girls.) And though the production will be as suffused with nostalgia as the book from Los Bros. Iggulden, Buchanan adds, it’s more about “a time before kids were aware of, or driving, pop culture—a time before there was ‘tween’ or ‘pre-tween’ marketing aimed square at young girls.”
