About the Book


How did snarly wolves change into loving pets? Do dogs really see everything in black and white? How can elephants talk to one another even while they are miles apart? These are just a few of the questions that scientists tackle in this book of true science stoires. In his warm, personal style, Jack Myers shows that science is much more than a collection of facts. It's an adventure of discovery.
