Girls Daring - Publisher Not So Much

The Daring Book For Girls is a big hit in the U.S.A. 

But Deb Ross has turned up disturbing news.  The Australian version encourages girls to play  the didgeridoo.  It's a musical instrument played by Australian aborigines. 

Only males are allowed to play it.  Among the Aborigines, that is.  But the authors encourage girls to give it a try.  How dare they!

The publisher will remove the offending chapter.

I hope the Saudi Daring Book For Girls
suggests they give driving and voting a whirl.
