    AUTHOR COMMENT: What makes HOW COME? different?

    What makes HOW COME? different from other kids' science books? First, the questions were asked by REAL KIDS, who have been sending their wonderful letters to How Come? for years: Why is the sky blue? Why do leaves change color in the fall? Why is the Moon orange when it's at the horizon? How did the zebra get its stripes? How come tears come out of our eyes when we cry? and hundreds more. Second, HOW COME? answers each question with the WHOLE story. So kids come away really knowing why cats can survive falls from high places, why greenish-tinted storm clouds are hail factories, and why yawns are so contagious. Every question is illustrated with Debra Solomon's laugh-out-loud-funny illustrations. All of which makes HOW COME? a book that kids AND adults can both enjoy. That's probably why HOW COME? is in its 12th printing, with more than 260,000 copies in print, and a selection of Book of the Month Club.

    This is a great book!

    Just about everything you've ever wondered about science or nature is explained here, everything from where zebras got their stripes to where lightning comes from. And even though it's called a 'young person's book,' each answer is an essay on the subject, long enough to really explain the answer. And the drawings made me laugh out loud.
