"WHY?" is Lily's favorite word. She asks it all the time. Her dad tries to give her sensible answers but sometimes he just gets upset. Then, one afternoon in the park, something rather unusual happens—something that makes Lily's dad very proud of her indeed.

About the Author:

Lindsay Camp is the author of many acclaimed children's books, including The Biggest Bed in the World, Hippos's River Cafe, and The Midnight Feast, illustrated by Tony Ross. Tony is an award-winning author and illustrator whose books include Dr Xargle's Book of Earth Tiggers, I'm Coming to Get You, and Tadpole's Promise.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Lily greets every statement with the question, "Why?" driving her father to distraction. Though he struggles valiantly to come up with reasonable responses, he sometimes finds himself with his head buried under a sofa pillow. One day in the park, father and daughter are having their usual exchange when a huge spaceship lands next to the sandbox. The Thargon leader declares his intention of destroying Earth and is greeted by stunned silence, except for Lily's "Why?" Caught in a frustrating question-answering spiral, the aliens quickly decide that they should reconsider their plan and make their exit. The invaders speak to each other in Thargish via dialogue balloons and there is a key at the end for intrepid readers who want to translate the language or use it for their own secret messages. Filled with colorful textured lines, Ross's whimsical illustrations add lots of visual humor. With his customary wit, the artist depicts a tiger-striped family cat, oozy blue-green aliens, and a feisty heroine with a sturdy stance and stick-straight red hair. Some of the artwork is arranged in comic-book squares, while other illustrations fill full- or double-page spreads. Children who are mired in the "Why?" stage will enjoy Camp's sprightly story as a one-on-one read-aloud. Those on the other side of "Why?" will delight in a trip down memory lane in a group or independent reading. A good choice-without question.
