"In 1865, legendary satirist Mark Twain did something unexpected – he penned a children’s story, in which he challenged kids to digest the intelligent humor he was, and still is, known for among his adult audiences. Nearly a century and a half later, beloved Russian children's illustrator Vladimir Radunsky and Brooklyn independent publisher Enchanted Lion (♥) are bringing Advice to Little Girls (public library) to life, envisioned in the style of the scrapbooks and small albums that children of Twain’s era used for doodling and collecting various curious ephemera."
