    “Providing exactly what the title promises, this is a treasure . . . it’s great for reading to kids
    of all ages. . . . [T]his is a steal at any price. Engaging, informative, and brightly written, the
    book will find a grateful, interested readership.”

    “A great gift for any curious minded reader—young or old.”
    —Publishers Weekly

  3. uone

    “Scheckel groups his queries into broad categories such as 'The Exquisite Human Body' and
    'At the Fringes of Science' and often expands on informal but direct explanations with
    further comments on related topics—plus brief instructions for spinning eggs, making
    campfires burn different colors, and like homespun experiments or activities . . . . along with

    trucking in physical principles to explain why cats land on their feet (it has to do with
    conservation of angular momentum) and like standard-issue mysteries, he poses some
    head-scratchers ('Why is there a big E on the top of the eye chart?') that will startle and
    maybe enlighten even older readers. Assorted revelations for enquirers who prefer their
    science straight up but not without occasional (semi-) comical relief.”

    —Kirkus Reviews

    This is a great book which helps me answers my kids’ curiosity and endless questions which I am not even aware of until we read this book. It’s fun to dip into again and again.

    My Grade 8 child loves this book. Being a very curious person and who loves science, there are a lot of questions he has in mind that were answered by the book. This book is very informative and would really suit for curious minded people regardless of age.
