Paul Heiney







Can Cows Walk Downstairs? Do Cats Have Belly Buttons?

What is ear wax for? Do bacteria have sex? How do they put stripes in toothpaste? Does your nose run in space? What are stars made of? These books answers those tantalising or perplexing questions for which you thought you'd never find an answer.

Books for the naturally curious, as well as those seekers after scientific truths, they unravel those things we take for granted, such as, when you boil an egg, why does the yolk stay in the middle, or why is the sky blue? As well as questions which probe deeply, such as, what does an atom look like, or what was there before the beginning of time? It will appeal to anyone who's ever been curious about life on earth.
