Synopsis

Does My Goldfish Know Who I Am? and hundreds more Big Questions from Little People answered by experts by Gemma Elwin Harris, Alexander Armstrong, Sir David Attenborough, Brian Cox

Why do zebras have stripes? Why do we close our eyes when we sneeze? Why are farts flammable? Why do we have recessions when we can just print more money? If you've ever been flummoxed by a child's questions, Does My Goldfish Know Who I Am? is the perfect book for you. With over 300 real questions from primary school aged children, the book offers bite-sized answers from world class experts - digestible in under 60 seconds. Following the huge success of Why Can't I Tickle Myself? published in Autumn 2012, this new volume will also include quizzes and favourite facts sections, making it a perfect gift for families. At least 33 per cent of the publisher's advance payments and 67 per cent of net royalty income in respect of sales of this book is payable to the NSPCC (Registered Charity Numbers 216401 & SC037717).

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

Helen Jones

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
