Solving many mysteries

These are just some of the thought-provoking questions posed in Kyle Hughes-Odgers� new book Can a Skeleton have an X-ray?

Well known for his uniquely styled illustrations and past books Ten Tiny Things and On a Small Island, Hughes-Odgers aims to spark imaginations with this offering.

He said the idea for the book came about while walking past a construction site and wondering how cranes were able to lift concrete slabs without toppling over.

�My nephews and nieces ask a lot of questions, my friends� children ask a lot of questions, children at book festivals and schools ask a lot of questions,� he said.

�I realised I enjoy asking them what they think the answer is or telling them elaborate lies about how things work.�

Can a Skeleton Have an X-ray is available from Fremantle Press.
