Big Questions From Little People . . . Answered By Some Very Big People


Children have a knack of asking great questions: Why is the sea salty? How far away is space? Why can't I tickle myself? What makes me me? 

These and many other questions are answered in Book One, but we need plenty more for Book Two! Do you have a question - and would you like to win an iPad Mini? ENTER OUR COMPETITION HERE.

But how are we supposed to answer them? Imagine if we could turn to a leading expert and ask them to answer on our behalf.

This book gathers over 100 real questions from children and puts them to some of our best-loved and most knowledgeable experts. Alain de Botton explores 'How are dreams made?', Kate Humble explains 'Why do lions roar?' and Heston Blumenthal answers 'Why do we cook food?'

Their answers to the Big Questions - some complex, some searching, some surreal and some just plain cute - make this an essential handbook for anyone who wants to understand the complexities of life, the universe and why cakes taste so nice.

Includes answers from Sir David Attenborough, Dame Kelly Holmes, Bear Grylls, Derren Brown, Noam Chomsky, Dr Richard Dawkins and many more.
