Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Alec Greven is only 9-years-old, but he knows a thing or two about sweet talking girls. The Colorado fourth grader wrote a self-help pamphlet for his fellow students at the age of eight. “How to Talk to Girls,” was a big hit at a school book fair. Publisher Harper Collins snatched up the dating book and released it last month.  


“How to Talk to Girls,” has been selling briskly. When I checked today, it was number 42 on the Barnes & Noble website and ranked 99 on’s bestseller list. Recently, the pint-size love guru has been interviewed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show, CNN, and the “Today Show.”

 Now, the young author has a movie deal. The Hollywood Reporter says Fox made a low-to-mid six figure deal for “How to Talk to Girls.” Meanwhile, Greven is planning to write a series of sequels for various age levels as he grows up and gains more knowledge about the opposite sex.
