Why?

By Lindsay Camp, Tony Ross

A witty and thought-provoking story from the duo behind The Midnight Feast, now available as an Andersen paperback.

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