Since 1901, the Nobel Prize has honored the world’s great geniuses in the most important fields: physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, economics, and world peace. What if children could ask these creative thinkers about some of life’s most intriguing mysteries, such as ""Why can’t I live on french fries?"" and ""What is love?"" the answers from the Dalai Lama, Mikhail Gorbachev, Shimon Peres, Desmond Tutu, and seventeen other Nobel Prize Laureates are rich with surprise, humor, and of course, wisdom. Every single answer will make readers think...and learn something new.
