Mark Twain and Vladimir Radunsky

Mark Twain’s Advice for Little Girls


Mark Twain’s witty advice to little girls was originally given out by the legendary author in 1865, and then lovingly retold in Italian in 2010 by illustrator Vladimir Radunsky. When Maria Popova, the brains behind the website Brain Pickings, stumbled upon it soon after, she decided to bring Radunsky’s rendition to life in English. Packed with humorous advice and charming pictorials, this how-to guide is as fun for adults as it is budding young women.
