Many of the favourite quirky questions of the under 10’s are answered in simple terms with a dash of humour and cartoon illustrations. Why do washing machines have windows?, Why do bruises change colour? and the title indicate the level of inquiry in this book from the U.K. Another question might be do these books have relevance in the days of Google?
