This is a highly popular and long-running series that explores the questions that young readers ask about the world around them in an unrivalled child-friendly style. The conversational format is perfect for delivering solid information in a natural, amusing and imaginative way."I Wonder Why Caterpillars Eat So Much" answers all sorts of questions that children ask about animal life cycles, from the story of a butterfly and the life tale of frogs and tadpoles to more unusual stories such as the lobster, which starts life as a tiny plankton, and the mosquito, which as a larva hangs upside down in water with a 'snorkel' to allow it to breathe air.show more
