He's only 9, but this pint-sized pickup artist already knows plenty about pleasing the ladies.

So much, in fact, that Alec Greven's dating primer, "How to Talk to Girls" - which began as a handwritten, $3 pamphlet sold at his school book fair - hit the shelves nationwide last week.

The fourth-grader from Castle Rock, Colo., advises Lothario wannabes to stop showing off, go easy on the compliments to avoid looking desperate - and be wary of "pretty girls."

"It is easy to spot pretty girls because they have big earrings, fancy dresses and all the jewelry," he writes in Chapter Three.

"Pretty girls are like cars that need a lot of oil."

He advises, "The best choice for most boys is a regular girl. Remember, some pretty girls are coldhearted when it comes to boys. Don't let them get to you."

Over a few Shirley Temples yesterday at Langan's on West 47 Street, Alec said that he culled his wisdom by peeking at his peers at play.

"I saw a lot of boys that had trouble talking to girls," Alec said.

As for his how-to, he concedes, "I never expected people to buy it like a regular book in a bookstore."

But with classic plain-spoken advice - like "comb your hair and don't wear sweats" - it's no surprise his 46-page book was a hit with boys and girls of all ages.

He believes the best way to approach a girl is to keep it to a simple "hi."

"If I say hi and you say hi back, we're probably off to a good start," he said.

As for his own love life, he said he is not dating anyone at the moment. "I'm a little too young," he confessed.

In his book, published by HarperCollins, he suggests holding off on falling in love until at least middle school.

Dating - which he defines as going out to dinner without your parents - is for "kind of old" people, who are 15 or 16.

Officials at the Soaring Hawk Elementary School said he wrote the book - which was the runaway bestseller at its book fair - for kids, but believe anyone can find inspiration in it.

Alec's mother, Erin Greven, credits her son's beyond-his-years insight to his avid reading.

"He reads nonstop. At dinner, I say, 'Put your book down,' " she said.

Alec - who just finished a children's book on the Watergate scandal - said he wants to be a full-time writer when he grows up, with a weekend job in archaeology or paleontology.

It's not about whether he did it or not before, it's about an advice. The kid said 'I'm too young for dating'. You're a hater with Pimp C on your avatar. You're a paradox. You shouldn't exist.

ok so how does anyone give advice on something they've never experienced before??

i can give advice to a dude fixing a computer but it wouldn't do him any good cuz i'm not experienced in that area therefor allow someone who does have that experience step in and give advice

im not hatin on the kid, yall got it twisted...he can make money writing all kinda books he wants...but i don't like it when people talk about shit they don't really know about

i'm guessin he already met yours and wrote his book based on that experience...prolly almost ate her out too till he got a whiff of that nastiness, backed off and n wrote "how to talk" rather than "how to get laid"

shraps nasty ass mom's coochie so stanky, she needs pussy beads made with pool balls covered in dog sperm n thats how she gave birth to his shiny pedophile-lookin ass, prolly made a squeeky noise too comin out that stingy stank pussy she got

LOL, it's obviously not a serious book that people are gonna go out and buy to help them with women, it's by a fuckin 9 YEAR OLD. I don't see why you're mad, he wrote it for people his age for a school project and everybody found it so entertaining that they wanted to publish it.

lmao @ you gettin annoyed cause the 9 YEAR OLD doesn't have enough experience to give out helpful advice to his classmates :lmao:

Now a movie is going to come out based on the book:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Fox is ready to take advice from a 9-year-old.

The studio has acquired the film rights to "How to Talk to Girls," a cute 46-page self-help tome written by Alex Greven, a Colorado fourth-grader.

Greven wrote "Girls" as a handwritten, $3 pamphlet sold at his school book fair; he wrote it after he noticed his peers were having some trouble talking to the ladies, though the book is geared for all ages. Among this advice: Comb your hair and don't wear sweats; control your hyperness and cut down on sugar if necessary; a crush is like a love disease that can drive you mad; it is easy to spot pretty girls because they have big earrings, fancy dresses and all the jewelry but are like cars that need a lot of oil.

Soon enough Harper Collins picked up the book, which came out in November and quickly became a hit. But initially, Fox, which is like Harper Collins is owned by News Corp ., and its book scouts passed on the title. But when the book hit the town last week, garnering heavy interest from multiple parties, Fox stepped back in and took the book off the table. The deal was in the low-to-mid six figures .

No writers or producers are attached yet.
