Questions yes, answers no.

I've been through this book several times and I'm frustrated at how little space each topic gets, in so much as it starts off well and then the author gets bored and just finishes the paragraph at the earliest opportunity.
I'm perhaps being a little unfair, the book is clearly aimed at making children question the world around them, which is good, and the art style is fantastic throughout (great quality paper too), it's just I wanted more.
I think there are better books that cover similar topics but this does have its own charm. Despite my misgivings I think it would make a great gift for a kid that likes a mental challenge and is a prepared to look up facts and come to their own conclusions.
Not bad, but falls short of really good.
