This is how it works (or not)
This is how it works (or not)Johan Thörnqvist, illustrated by Johan Thörnqvist
With new writer Johan Thörnqvist we follow Miriam and her grandfather through town, where they discover the most imaginative explanations for how all the mechanical things work. We learn of alternative explanations for everything from how traffic lights function, why doors open automatically as you approach them, how planes can fly and how lifts can go up and down. A completely crazy picture world, full of clever little rascals that nobody knew were there.
Target group 3-6 years. For children (and parents) with enquiring minds and vivid imaginations who want a read aloud book that is fun and different, complete with busy, detailed pictures reminiscent of Richard Scarry.
