When supervillain Doctor X-Ray swoops in threatening to vanquish an innocent crowd, the only one brave enough not to run away is a little girl, who asks him simply, "Why?" He is taken aback — but he answers. She keeps asking. And he keeps answering — until a surprising truth is uncovered, and the villain is thwarted.
This book is a laugh-out-loud take on the small-and-determined-beats-big-loud-bully story, in which simple questions lead to profound answers in a quest that proves the ultimate power of curiosity, A sweet and appealing tale for anyone familiar with the universal tendency of young children to always ask WHY?
"As his pale cheeks flush with emotion, Doctor X-Ray peels back the onion of his interior life, unearthing powerful reasons behind his pursuit of tyranny. This all sounds heavy, but the humorously monotonous questions coupled with free-wheeling illustrations by Keane set a quick pace with comical results.... A funny David-versus-Goliath story with a one-word question serving as the slingshot." — Kirkus Reviews
