What's the point of a porcupine? Why can't my dog talk to me? Could my cat be a cannibal? Why does a shark need such big teeth? This book provides an engaging way for young people to discover more about animals by asking and answering questions for themselves. The book is structured around twenty-two questions, each one tackled over two spreads. The first spread explores the question and answer, supported by a detailed illustration, photograph or diagram.

The second spread asks further questions on a similar theme to help build an understanding of how some animals share characteristics while others may adapt in different ways to survive in the same environment. Fresh and informal without being flippant, this is a swift introduction to natural history that will enable children to feel confident asking and investigating the questions that interest them most.
