About the Author:

Joanna Cole is the author of the popular Magic School Bus series, I'm a Big Brother, I'm a Big Sister, and many other award-winning books. In Asking About Sex & Growing Up, she provides a reassuring blend of practical guidance and scientific fact for the audience that needs it most.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-A delightful collection of over 200 riddles, grouped by subject. A brief introduction gives a definition of "riddle" and some historical background. Answers are printed upside down and backwards, in smaller type, directly below each question. Joseph Rosenbloom's Zaniest Riddle Book in the World (Sterling, 1985) is similarly organized; however, Chicken's larger format, use of white space, and bold lettering are more inviting to young readers. Tiegreen's black-and-white cartoons, which appear on each page, are humorous and clever. A helpful subject index is included, as well as a list of additional sources. "What did one library book say to the other?" "Can I take you out?" Be sure to take this one out for fun!-Mary Ann Bursk, Bucks County Free Library, Levittown, PA
