Big Questions competition

big questions book jacket

Children have a knack of asking great questions: Why is the sea salty? How far away is space? Why can't I tickle myself? But how are we supposed to answer their questions when most of us have only a sketchy grasp of the detail?

Imagine if you could turn to a leading expert and ask them to answer these fiendishly difficult questions in simple terms. A new book published by Faber & Faber and conceived by Gemma Elwin Harris to help raise vital funds for the NSPCC does just that.

Big Questions From Little People features over 100 real questions from children answered by some of our best-loved and most knowledgeable experts including Sir David Attenborough, Dame Kelly Holmes, Dr Richard Dawkins, Derren Brown and Bear Grylls.

Their answers to the Big Questions make this an essential handbook for anyone who wants to understand the complexities of life, the universe and why cakes taste so nice.

Win: John Lewis vouchers and the chance to have your child's question answered.

Let us know the big question your child has stumped you with. We'll pick our favourites and get the experts to answer them in Gemma Elwin Harris's next book Big Questions from Little People and Instant Answers. Plus - our top three favouite questions, as chosen by the judges, will each win £150 in John Lewis vouchers.
