Father Knows Less or Can I Cook My Sister?: One Dad's Quest to Answer His Son's Most Baffling Questions by Wendell Jamieson
"Jamieson, city editor for the New York Times , whose seven-year-old son, Dean, has been in 'full-bore question mode' for the past few years, decided that the best strategy for giving Dean the answers was also to give himself a challenge. He would get each answer 'from a real person who knows it by heart, whose very livelihood depends on the knowledge' that Jamieson would present without sugarcoating or simplification. The result is a compendium of hilariously insightful questions from kids (age seven and under) with often insightfully hilarious answers from adults." (Publishers Weekly)
