A dreamer's handbook for kids--and parents--offering practical results All kids love the idea of a hideaway--a place that is theirs, no parents allowed. But how on earth can they actually build one? InHow to Build Clubhouses and Secret Hideaways, an inspirational yet practical guide, David Stiles, the most trusted authority on D-I-Y building projects, shows them how. Assuming no previous experience from the fort builder, the book starts with the basics for kids and their parents: how to buy wood, and what kind of screws and nails to use. It includes a brief history of forts and more than twenty projects ranging from the simple (a blanket and umbrella fort) to the more challenging (a stockade fort). The book even includes forts made of snow, sand, or branches. An accessories section features projects that can be made in just a few hours, such as a slide, swing, catapult, periscope, cannon, and water balloon launcher. David Stilesis also the author ofHow to Build Treehouses, Huts, and Forts(Lyons Press). He and his wife, Jeanie Stiles, are the award-winning authors of twenty-one books on building projects. Their many TV appearances include NBC'sThe Today Show, HGTV, and the Discovery Channel. Visit them at stilesdesigns.com. They live in New York City and East Hampton, New York.
