In his second fact-filled collection, McLain, author of "Do Fish Drink Water"?, serves up a whole new round of real-life questions and answers that he has come across as Xerox's Webmaster. Surprising, funny, and endlessly fascinating, "What Makes Flamingos Pink?" traverses questions on subjects ranging from the animal kingdom to food, from inventions to disasters, from the human body to just plain far out. You'll learn why squirrels don't fall off telephones wires, why fingers and toes become pruney after a long bath, how seedless watermelons are made, and much more.
Featuring answers that are often as wacky as the questions that prompted them, as well as including lists of websites where readers can go to learn evem more, this is the ultimate cure for the unquenchable curious.
