Meet Lily the Little Girl Who Always Asks Why?
by Lindsay Camp & Tony Ross

Lily asks Why? - all the time. Sometimes it annoys her dad. But one extraordinary day, when some unfriendly visitors arrive in a spaceship, Lily's bravery & questioning make her dad appreciate her asking "why"!


Fun illustrations are warm & whimsical, a jolly complement to the story's lighthearted mood

To great effect, many spreads are divided comic-book-style into panel illustrations, allowing room for fun-to-read dialogue balloons

Lots of visual humour

Children who are mired in the "Why?" stage will enjoy this. Those on the other side of "Why?" will delight in a trip down memory lane in a group or independent reading

This is one of my favourites to read to kids at the library because the audience immediately begins to participate! The illustrations are bright, energetic & cute. The end makes adults smile warmly. The kids adore it

My grandson giggled all the way through it

My boys (5 & 3 years old) laugh uproariously when I read this


It uses a comfortable storytelling style to evoke a stage of childhood familiar to parents everywhere, then adds playful dialogue asides & a dash of the fantastic
