Format: Paperback
Here's another installment of the "Imponderables™" series, which, the jacket explains, find the answers to the conundrums over which, whether you realize it or not, you have been obsessing since your very beginning. Such as:
Why did they sacrifice innocent bunny rabbits to determine if human females were pregnant? The Darwinian biology and physiology of a sunburn and subsequent peeling.
Also considered are Reader Responses to "Frustables" posed previously:
Why do women have to go to the Ladies' Room in a pack instead of singly?
What *IS* it with men and the Remote Control?
Does anyone really like fruitcake?
As with "Do Penquins Have Knees," we are not here tackling "What is the meaning of life?" but the quick questions and answers are entertaining and illuminating. It's fun food for thought and answered my throbbing question: How does aspirin know I took it for a headache and not a stubbed toe? Reviewed by TundraVision

Once again Feldman assaults us with silly little tidbits that we really, really want to know. In this installment, i.e., How Does Aspirin Find a Headache : An Imponderables Book by David Feldman, Kassie Schwan (Illustrator), we find out why ham does not change color when it is cooked and why was 21 chosen as the age of majority?

All of Feldman's "Why Do" books are a blast. You cannot help but read them out loud to who ever is listening. Alot of fun for older kids. He even asks for help solving some of the unsolved questions. And he accepts questions for future books.
If you read one, you want to read all the others. Too bad Amazon didn't sell them in sets as I have seen in other catalogs.

Have you ever wondered why pigs are roasted with an apple in their mouths? Or perhaps wondered why covered bridges are covered? Maybe you've always wanted to know the answer as to why we wave Polorids in the air after they come out of the camera? If you have, then this is the book for you! Even after so many other books in the Imponderables series, this book is still interesting. However, I recomend flipping through it, reading only the questions that interest you. If you read it cover to cover, it won't be as enjoyable. It also features the popular "Frustables" column, and an all new section with letters from readers. Overall, it's a fun and entertaining read.

Somewhat mature themes to narratives. Dec 5 2013
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book in the series is somewhat more "graphic" and mature in the stories than the other Imponderable book we purchased as a gift for a grandchild, and thus we've decided not to give this one to him.

Beware of Adult content Aug. 5 2013
By Debra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am always careful to look for clues about content, but some of the sections in this book are definitely adult content only. I had to throw it away because i found it offensive and since our grandchildren are often in the house I would never want them to see it.
