“Students will find this a fun book to browse independently or share with friends. An excellent choice for reluctant readers in search of entertaining, informative nonfiction.” —School Library Journal
“Parents who slugged through science back in the day might want to take a peek, and science teachers confronting the lost, the confused, or the disengaged should welcome this as a lively back-up plan.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“This will be devoured by even the most reluctant readers or scientists.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Reluctant readers will find both format and subject appealing. Public libraries and media centers should acquire multiple copies, if possible, to meet certain demand.” —VOYA
“Children will have fun browsing the spacious pages and sharing what they read with adults, who can join in the explanations about complex stuff, including time travel and Einstein’s theory of relativity.” —Booklist

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Basic questions such as, "Why is the sky blue?" and "What are sneezes for, anyway?" along with, "Where did the Moon come from?" to "Will computers ever be smarter than people?" are among the numerous queries posed and will keep those certain kids that love to ask "those" questions busy reading. There are lists sprinkled throughout the book. One such list called, "Top 10 Killer Animals" kept my students guessing because of the surprising answers. This book is good to read as a group, or for individual reading.
There are also plenty of nasty/gross questions along with even more delightfully disgusting answers. They liked it, so I like it.
