Advice to Little Girls is a humorous short story written by Mark Twain in 1865 and published in 1867. However, it would not be wise for young a girls to take the advice to heart. That said, given the gore of the Civil War, its references to fantasies of methods for resolving sibling tensions are relatively tame. Besides, the piece is certainly tongue-in-cheek, having Twain's mock seriousness and absurdities that abound. Often what starts out as a reasonable suggestion for mutually compatible co-existence ends up as being ludicrous and outrageous. Scalding a younger brother with hot water as a method to secure his attention falls in this category. Other Stories includes: Was it Heaven? Or Hell?, The $30,000 Bequest, A Dog's Tale, The Five Boons of Life, How to Tell a Story, and others...

In perhaps the most satirical children's book of all time, Mark Twain dishes out outrageous, witty, and practical advice for girls with ease. Twain advises restraint for small offences, explains how to use coercion instead of brute force, and recommends that young girls learn from their past mistakes. Written at a time when girls were expected to conform to society, Twain breaks down barriers and encourages young girls to explore the limits of their potential. Mark Twain originally wrote Advice to Little Girls as a tongue-in-cheek parody of commonplace etiquette books. Several additional quotes by Twain complement the original work in this edition, and add depth to his advice. Also included is an activity, a quiz, and definitions of complicated words. New York artist Anna Shukeylo paints Twain's reasonable absurdities, igniting the imagination of little girls around the world.

From the Introduction: The second volume of this collection follows Clemens from his first days as a resident journalist in California, late in May 1864, through the end of his first full year as a California resident, 1865. In this twenty-month period he wrote most of his work for the San Francisco Golden Era, the Morning Call, the Dramatic Chronicle, and the Californian. He began to publish somewhat more regularly in eastern journals, like the New York Saturday Press and the Weekly Review, and toward the end of the period he started a long assignment as the daily correspondent from San Francisco to the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. In November 1865 he published "Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog" [no. 119] and by the beginning of 1866 the news of its success with eastern readers had begun to filter back to California. He was on the verge of national and international fame as a humorist.

In Miranda's words: 'The more emails I got from my little sister asking for advice on what to wear, make-up, boys, parties and alcohol, the more I thought about writing it all down. I started collecting funky flyers, cutting up magazines, drawing pictures and writing little passages and the book got bigger and bigger. I used to sit with my best mate Tara, a bottle of wine and a sitting room covered in colouring pencils, magazine scraps and glue, laughing about the silly little situations in life one can get oneself into.'I realised that although I don't have the answer to everything, I have had to deal with many difficult situations in which I have always said to myself, I wish that someone had told me how to do this. I also became aware that no matter how bad, embarrassing or difficult life seems at the time, you can usually look back on what happened and laugh about it. This is where the problem lies. The advice is never written down, and the situation is forgotten as it seems so trivial afterwards. That is why most kids think that adults don't or would not understand. In most cases, they just can't remember what it was like to worry about the small things in life. This is why big sisters can be very useful.'
