Review Quote*

"One of the invaluable strengths of this book is that it makes it clear that no question is too silly to ask, even the questions about toots and poo. Every question is validated with a scientific answer . . . Why Don't Cars Run on Apple Juice? shines with wonderment. Make sure you read it yourself before you put it into circulation in your classroom or library because, once you share it with your students, there will be a waiting list to read it. You may even want to buy two copies."  -CM Reviews, *starred review, 06/07/19
