Here is the Internationale JugendbIliothek thrilling review:
»Pubertad en marcha«, published by Iamiqué, long known as a creative non-fiction publisher, offers a
fresh take on puberty and sexuality.
Relaxed and not shy about naming and explaining the many facets of puberty, the three female authors don’t limit themselves to biological aspects, although of course topics like bodily change, menstruation, body odour
and masturbation occupy notable space.
At least as important, though, are puberty’s social and psychological dimensions. This is expressed by the fact that the book isn’t directed just at girls or at boys, but at everyone.
It also draws on the concept of gender instead of the traditionally binary concept of sex and foregrounds questions of gender identity, gender roles and expectations, sexual self-determination and the astonishing diversity of human bodies and sexualities.
This is all conveyed in a clear, compelling, and lively way in the pairing of a well-founded, very readable text and Martina Trach’s easy-going colour illustrations. (Age: 11+) [JW]
