Archie is back! The cute little rhino from Tracey Corderoy and Tim Warnes' fab book "NO!" is back, and he has a question.

It's the question that most parents dread, because there is often no right answer. We're currently STILL going through the "Why?" phase with Charlotte as she has a zillion and one questions about everything, and never quite hears the answer she wants or expects from long suffering mummy and daddy (even when it's the right answer!)

Archie is the same. He plagues his parents from dusk till dawn.

"Why is glue so sticky?"

"Why do things smash when I drop them on the floor?"

"Why Why WHY?????"

We love the parents' hang-dog expressions in this book and we love the way Archie's natural curiosity fizzes from every page. We have tried all sorts of methods of satisfying Charlotte's curiosity when she asks "WHY?" but perhaps this fabulous book might help a little bit (and help you too!)

Charlotte's best bit: When Archie finally runs out of steam at the end of a busy day. Aww!

Daddy's Favourite bit: Why is this book so great? WHY? WHY?
