Like, "Why is my body suddenly growing more hair?" or "Why do I have these weird feelings?" or even, "Is what is happening to me normal?" From laying out what you can expect in the coming months and even years to what to do with the urges and emotions you’re dealing with now, this book is full of answers … and reassurances that what you’re going through now is indeed a normal part of growing up, and something you don’t have to be ashamed of at all.

"He’s loud, rowdy, honest, knowledgeable and small enough to live in a boy’s bellybutton. He’s Lintball Leo, the eight to twelve-year-old boy’s best friend. Answering embarrassing, hard-to-think-out questions about puberty is Leo’s forte. Using questions gathered from real boys, Lintball Leo’s Not-So Stupid Questions About Your Body gives answers on subjects such as: the changes in ‘boy parts’ and when they might happen and what to do about it; zits and smells; anger and mood control; girls and what to do about them; tattoos and body piercing; and other more intimate, neat, and worrisome matters. Using simple, straightforward language with humor, each chapter introduces a question then looks at the ramifications and provides excellent, Bible-based answers. Every chapter has a theme Bible verse and ends with a ‘Get Smarter’ section for further growth. A special section on what bodily changes a boy should expect at various ages comes after chapter two.
"Noted radio and television speaker and Focus on the Family associate, Dr. Walt Larimore presents facts in clear, unembarrassed fashion, encouraging boys to choose the right thing for today and for his future. Author and humorist, John Riddle makes sure those facts are fun to absorb. Adding to the fun with his black and white cartoons and silly boy photos, illustrator Mark Phillips piquantly emphasizes the information.
"The cover of Lintball Leo says, “For boys only!” Don’t believe it. This book is also for the parents, youth workers, and teachers of pubescent boys. Having trouble getting him to ask questions? Having trouble getting yourself ready to answer those questions? Often Lintball Leo strongly encourages the boy to go to his parents and other trustworthy advisors with his questions. This book is a useful tool for initiating meaningful conversation between boy and adult advisor. It will also be useful in school, homeschooling, and church groups. Lintball Leo is the latest in the ZonderKidz 2:52 Soul Gear series." -- Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews
