The "interactive" presentation of ideas in this book with its funny and imaginative illustrations of fundamental philosophical dilemmas has proved the perfect book to rekindle my eleven year old son's interest in reading. He wants more philsophy now! Children have so many books from school in which they have to work through things in set orders and in which they are told what to think & what to believe that this book comes as a breath of fresh air. The author invites the reader to dip into the files at random and make up his/her own mind about everything. I'm sure that this lack of "lecturing" is a big part of what made this book stand out as special for my child.
