Tell Me Why the Earth is Like a Jigsaw and Other Questions About Planet Earth by Barbara Taylor

Bizarre, confusing or just plain strange things happen in the world around us all the time. Each title in the Tell Me Why...series delves into some of the great mysteries of everyday life, and uses the world of science and scientific research to make sense of them. Bright, dynamic artwork supports the text, making the series visually appealing as well as factually fascinating. Have you ever wondered why rain falls from the sky? Or why it gets dark at night? And why do some places have four seasons? Tell Me Why The Earth is Like a JIgsaw and Other Questions About Planet Earth provides the answers to these tricky questions about our planet, and many more besides, using lighthearted text and eye-catching artwork to get to the bottom of these scientific problems.
