Summary:
"We've all grown so used to living in a world filled with wonders that we sometimes forget to wonder about them: What creates the wind? Do fish sleep? Why do we blink? These are common phenomena, but it's a rare person who really knows the answers-do you? All too often, the explanations remain shrouded in mystery-or behind a haze of technical language. For those of us who should have raised our hands in science class but didn't, Larry Scheckel comes to the rescue. An award-winning science teacher and longtime columnist for his local newspaper, Scheckel is a master explainer with a trove of knowledge. Just ask the students and devoted readers who have spent years trying to stump him!"--P. [4] of cover.
