Did you know that squirrels create a mental map of their nut caches and can actively retrieve them using this memory? Turn to page 130 to learn more! Do you know why pigeons bob their heads when they walk, why each snowflake is unique, or why we blush? You will find all the answers within these wonderful pages. Scientific mysteries are explained and illustrated in unique and whimsical essays and drawings. Be sure to read the introduction in which David Macaulay explains how the artwork was paired with each question. This is an immensely readable book, fascinating to look at, and educational as well.
