Review: Does a Bear Sh*t in the Woods? by Caroline Taggart

Goodreads:  Serious answers to rhetorical questions--what's not to like? 

For those of us who have long wondered where bears go to take care of their business, if the Pope is actually Catholic, or whether anyone is really made of money, Caroline Taggart provides the answers to these and a host of previously unanswerable questions. 

From the most profound questions of philosophy to queries of geography and science, this deadpan book is full of hilarious information you never knew you needed including: 

What's love got to do with it? 
How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man? 
Where does the time go? 
Can a leopard change his spots? 

Kritters Thoughts:  A funny take on answering those questions that have been out in the world left unanswered because we all weren't sure if there was truly an answer for any of them.  A collection of questions sorted by topic with answers that range from short and simple to more with a philosophical approach.  My favorite question and answer was - "Is it me or is it hot in here?"  With the answering mentioning menopause - I started laughing out loud because I have been around a woman in the middle of menopause and the hot flashes were something else.

A cute little read that I enjoyed in one sitting, but others may enjoy a question or two a day.  While others may even enjoy leaving it on their toilets for their guests to enjoy.  I think these questions and answers could even be enjoyed as a group - while enjoying other's takes on how the questions were answered.  Definitely a delightful little read.

 Rating: perfect beach read

 Pages:  160
