- Where does the world come from?
- Can anyone know what I think?
- How do my legs go where I want them to go while my mind is elsewhere?
- What is time?
- Why am I alive?
- What happens when I die?
Jostein Gaarder does not have any answers. At least not in this book. What he does have is some beautiful illustrations by Akin Düzakin, which follow a little boy's adventures and ponderings.
Questions Asked can be a great conversation starter. I can imagine reading this with my own child, or in a therapy session, or, if a teacher is brave, in a classroom. Be prepared for some lengthy discussions.
