Why Can’t I Tickle Myself? – paperback, fiction, pre-owned, 336 pages

$3.00

A pre-owned paperback fiction – “Why Can’t I Tickle Myself?”

Published in hardback as Big Questions From Little People…Answered By Some Very Big People. Children have a knack of asking great, but challenging, questions: Why is the sea salty? How far away is space? Why can’t I tickle myself? What makes me me? But how are we supposed to answer them? Imagine if we could turn to a leading expert and ask them to answer on our behalf. This book gathers over 100 real questions from children and puts them to some of our best-loved and most knowledgeable experts. Alain de Botton explores ‘How are dreams made?’, Kate Humble explains ‘Why do lions roar?’ and Heston Blumenthal answers ‘Why do we cook food?’ Their answers to the Big Questions – some complex, some searching, some surreal and some just plain cute – make this an essential handbook for anyone who wants to explain the complexities of life to their children. Includes answers from Sir David Attenborough, Dame Kelly Holmes, Bear Grylls, Derren Brown, Noam Chomsky, Dr Richard Dawkins, Alain de Botton, Annabel Karmel, Jacqueline Wilson, Jarvis Cocker, Marcus du Sautoy, Jessica Ennis, Marcus Chown, Tracey Emin, Harry Hill, Dr Christian Jessen and many more.

    A pre-owned paperback fiction - "The Great Automatic Grammatizator and Other Stories" by author Roald Dahl

    Synopsis

    Is it really possible to invent a machine that does the job of a writer? What is it about a landlady's house that makes it so hard for her guests to leave? Does Sir Basil Turton value most his wife or one of his priceless sculptures? Here are thirteen of Roald Dahl's most unexpected tales, offering young readers the perfect introduction to the adult writing of a storytelling genius. From the sensitivity of stories such as 'Katina' to the surprising creepiness of 'Taste', these stories are full of all the fun, excitement and wonder of Roald Dahl's writing, offering originality, ingenuity, horror, unexpected twists and turns, a touch of the macabre - and much more besides.
