Does My Goldfish Know Who I Am?
Compiled by Gemma Elwin Harris
Following the success of 'Big Questions from Little People' published in 2012, 'Does My Goldfish Know Who I Am?' is a treasury of surprising facts and insights inspired by the curiosity of children and conceived by Gemma Elwin Harris.
This book takes real children's questions, gathered from primary schools across the UK, and asks some of the greatest thinkers and experts of our time to give short and accessible answers. So, Sir David Attenborough tells us whether monkeys could ever turn into men and Miranda Hart ponders why it's funny when someone farts. Other experts in the book range from Bear Grylls to Sir Paul McCartney, and from Jojo Moyes to A.C. Grayling.
Described in the foreword by Alexander Armstrong as "invaluable", the book also features a chapter of quizzes devised from primary school children's questions, making it a fun, educational and interactive family gift.
At least 33 per cent of the publisher's advance payments and 67 per centof net royalty income in respect of this book is donated to the NSPCC in support of our projects and services to help vulnerable children and young people across the UK and Channel Islands, including ChildLine.
'Does My Goldfish Know Who I Am?' is available in hardback from all good bookshops, selected supermarkets and online at Amazon, as well as an eBook version.
The first book in the 'Big Questions' series is out now in paperback under the title 'Why Can't I Tickle Myself?' and is also available on Amazon.
Big Questions From Little People...Answered By Some Very Big People
Edited by Gemma Elwin Harris
Children have a knack of asking great questions: Why is the sea salty? Why can't I tickle myself? But how are we supposed to answer their questions when most of us have only a sketchy grasp of the detail?
Imagine if you could turn to a leading expert and ask them to answer in simple terms. This book does just that, gathering over 100 real questions from children, answered by some of our best-loved and most knowledgeable experts including Sir David Attenborough, Dame Kelly Holmes and Bear Grylls.
For each book sold a minimum of 67 per cent of net royalty income will be donated to the NSPCC, helping to fund our projects and services across the UK and Channel Islands, including ChildLine.
The book is available in hardback from all good bookshops and selected supermarkets. You can also buy online from stores such as Amazon, including eBook and audio book versions.
