Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
The fifty questions of the title are listed in the table of contents, allowing immediate access to the answer and accompanying facts. The subjects are varied, including animals, insects, plants, machines, geography, weather and planets and do not follow any particular order or grouping. Each answer/subject is presented on one page with simple text in short descriptive sentences. Sidebars, in contrasting color and labeled "Did you know...," give additional facts about the answer/subject. The graphics are bright and eye-catching and are paired with illustrations that are whimsical, offering amusing interpretations of the text. As an information-driven, picture-style book, a useful enhancement would be color photographs of the answer to the question presented on each page, where appropriate. For example, a photograph of an actual leafy sea dragon, in addition to the cartoon-style drawing, would add to the information presented in answer to the question, "Which Dragon Lives Underwater"? One of the "Questions" series, this book concludes with "Quick-Quiz Questions," "Quick-Quiz Answers," "Tricky Words," "Where to Find Stuff" and "Farewell." It would be a good addition to a pre-school or early elementary school resource library. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
