I Wonder Why Stars Twinkle by Carole Stott

This highly popular and long-running series has been revamped for a new generation of readers, with a clean, crisp redesign and colourful covers. The series explores 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. Designed to amuse and intrigue the young reader, this book combines cartoons with fun facts and simple analogies to provide an introduction to the marvels of space asking questions such as: how many stars are there?; how hot is the sun?; and what is a black hole?
