This book does just that: over 100 real questions from children aged five to twelve, answered by some of our best-loved and our most knowledgeable experts. From Sir David Attenborough, on whether there are any undiscovered animals, to Bear Grylls on whether it’s ever ok to eat a worm, to Richard Dawkins on whether we're all related, Big Questions brings together a huge range of talent to inform and illuminate us in a way that even a child could understand.
It’s the perfect book for any parent who lives in fear of being stumped by an eight-year-old's too-difficult question, and a great book for all the family.
