Former CBC Radio host Marg Meikle's three humorous but fact-filled books You Asked for It!, Funny You Should Ask and Ask Me Anything! are now available in an omnibus bindup at a sensational price! The award-winning books are included in their entirety, along with over 140 illustrations. Here are the answers to all the questions that hundreds of kids asked her-questions that would likely stump most adults. Half the fun of reading the answers is the off-on-a-tangent-with-more-facts approach that Marg is famous for using.
Among the hundreds of trivia questions answered are: Why is 13 unlucky? Why don't tattoos come off? Do twins have the same DNA? Why is it called a funny bone? What did we use before toilet paper? Do animals dream? Why can't you tickle yourself?
Over 300 wacky but informative answers fill the pages, grouped under themes of Customs, Holidays, Superstitions, Food, The Opposite Sex, and more!
Marg Meikle's knack for finding answers led to a widely appreciated stint on CBC Radio as "The Answer Lady". She further demonstrated her skills by writing several books of non-fiction, including three for children: You Asked for It!, Funny You Should Ask Me and Ask Me Anything!.
For her efforts, she has been awarded both the Silver Birch and Red Cedar Awards. In addition to her writing, Marg has created a hugely successful fundraiser for the Parkinson's Society, raising over $30,000 annually with her Porridge for Parkinson's event. She lives in Vancouver, BC with with her family.
