The Big Book of Children’s Questions – Clever Answers in Read-Aloud Stories

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of our popular Question Book series

Why don't sharks have to go to the dentist? Why don't penguins get cold feet? Where is the wind, when it's not blowing? Children are never shy about asking questions. Adults, however, are not always quite so forthcoming with the answers – not least as they don't always know them! However, these clever and amusing stories will help to plug the gaps.
