Overview

What Makes Popcorn Pop?: And Other Questions about the World Around Us by Jack Myers

How do fish breathe? Can bulls really see red? Did unicorns really exist? Why do wolves howl at the moon? Can you get to China by digging a hole?
Here in paperback are four outstanding books that will whet the appetite of any child who is curious about the world and how it works. Dr. Myers answers questions in a warm, informative manner that helps young readers understand the complexity of science. Boys and girls discover that science needn't be dull and dry—it can be fun and exciting. What makes these books even more special is that they feature questions and answers that have been collected from a quarter century of Highlights for Children. These are real questions from real kids.
