Overview

Windmills keep the cows cool, Napolean invented Neapolitan ice cream, armadillos live in Amarillo. Author Mat Connolley has made a hobby of collecting the funny things that kids believe. One website and tens of thousands of contributions later, Butter Comes from Butterflies gathers in one delightfully illustrated volume these silly, strange, and sometimes astonishing explanations for the way the world works. Equal parts misunderstanding, imagination, and good old-fashioned zany kid logic, the unique musings in these pages range from sweet notions—"birds grow from birdseed"—to hilarious mix-ups—"gorilla-cheese sandwiches" and "God is short for Godfrey." Scientifically proven to be impossible to put down, the off-base wisdom of Butter Comes from Butterflies is sure to charm and delight.
