Here's a fascinating collection of misunderstandings, myths, mistakes, and misconceptions that kids enjoy talking about, reading about--and debunking when they are able. Is it possible to use an umbrella as a parachute? Can you fly away by holding a big bunch of party balloons? Do hair and nails continue to grow after a person dies? Is it really dangerous to eat before you go swimming? The correct answers to these and many more questions are presented, and augmented with reasons why many incorrect answers have captured the popular imagination and continue to be believed. Here's a great book for browsing, for putting an end to old arguments--and maybe for starting a few new ones. Cartoon style black-and-white line illustrations on most pages.
