Why does she have to get up? Why does she have to get dressed? Why does it rain? Why do these questions sound familiar? Because Lily is going through that exasperating phase every child goes through. Most of the time her father tries to be patient and answer her, but sometimes it drives him insane. It takes an alien invasion to remind him why asking why can be a good thing.Tony Ross's bold illustrations portray an unflappable heroine. There is even a key on the endpapers, so inquisitive minds can decode the alien dialog.
