5 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


This colorful book explores questions like “Why isn’t the sky orange instead of blue?”, “Why don’t animals need to brush their teeth?” and “Why doesn’t the moon have a name?”.
With a thousand detailed and interesting answers to every weird question you never thought to ask, this book is full of strange and weird facts about animals, space, biology, geology, technology, and many other subjects.
I love the vibrant photographs that accompany each question, and how the answers are organized into small paragraphs that are easy to read, and keep the reader curious to learn more. The answers use simple science and logic to explain in a clear way that is easy to understand, and include some of the history of discovery that brought us the knowledge we have today.

I love the imaginative questions! Some of the questions include, “Why don’t I have a doppelganger?”, “Why can’t I open the window in an airplane?”, and “Why does my voice sound different to me in a recording?”

This would be the perfect book for a child or teen who is curious about the world, and it will spark their interest in learning more! The bright colors and weird questions really drew me in, and made me want to read every page!
