Do Igloos Have Loos by Mitchell Symons
In "Do Igloos Have Loos?" Mitch Symons, the revolting reference expert, answers burning questions such as: How do you get out of quicksand? Why does your skin get wrinkly if you stay too long in the bath? Is your right foot really clever? And, crucial for everyone likely to get caught short in the Arctic, 'Do igloos have loos'?
This is one of those books that you can pick up and find out something you didn't know. It is full of those questions that children ask and you don't know the answer too. How far is away is the horizon? Why do we 'draw' curtains when we open or close them? Why do leaves change colour in the autumn>
This book will appeal to inquisitive children of all ages and will get them telling everybody what they have learnt. The book includes lots of great drawings to accompany the text and the book's humour.
Thank you to Michael from The School Run Forum for sending me the book to review.
