KIRKUS REVIEW

The enormous popularity of Answer Book (1959, J-350) almost required the author to give us More Answers -- and once again in direct, simple language geared for middle graders, Miss Elting presents a similar format of questions and answers gleaned from many inquisitive young minds, and checked for accuracy by experts in the various fields she covers. Scores of questions on space, human and animal habits, electricity, astronomy and mathematics --in loosely related profusion, are followed by clear succinct explanations and colorful drawings by Tran Mawicke. A miscellany of fascinating facts is threaded with a special attitude -- no question is too foolish to answer. Thus every child no matter how reticent is given warm encouragement to pursue his curiosity to the nth degree.
