With titles on everything from penguins to knights to magnets, the only thing binding together the books in the Why Why Why series is the need-to-know needling of the imagined child leading us through each volume of themed questions. Though most books that truck in fast-and-furious fun facts use photos to dazzle readers (think DK), this series makes the curious but sometimes rewarding choice of using a mix of emotive, detailed drawings and goofy cartoons. Why Why Why—Do Dolphins Squeak? narrows the focus to whales and dolphins and becomes more interesting the more tangential it gets (examples: whaling minutiae and the story of Jonah). Activity sidebars appearing throughout the books are especially fun, if sometimes messy (imitating whale blowholes with a straw, for instance). A quiz and index close each title. Scattershot by nature but undeniably educational. Grades 4-6. --Daniel Kraus
