Book: Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? Big Questions From Tiny Mortals
Author: Caitlin Doughty
This is my 52nd book for this year
Caitlin is back answering questions that kids have asked about death and funerals. Caitlin receives dozens of questions daily about death and decided to composite the most asked and blends her knowledge as an experienced mortician and known history to answer those questions. Quesions like: does our hair and nails continue to grow? What happens to astronauts if they die in space? Do people poop when they die? Can I have a Viking funeral. She brings humor and science together and gets to the bottom of these pressing questions that even adults have.
Another excellent book by this author. Caitlin is candid and knowledgable and it shows. She does a terrific job explaining a lot of questions that kids (and let's face it - adults) have about death and what happens to bodies. She takes her vast knowledge and forms it into understandable answers full of history and science. You will find yourself smiling and laughing at some of the myths that she uncovers based on the questions she gets. I learned a lot from all of her books, but feel that this was a good book to help answer some of those questions kids have.
Check out her series. I hope she doesn't stop writing. She is extremely talented and smart and I am glad I have found her books.
