Polarnights are long and cold. Since there is nothing much to do, the penguins have started to collect all their secret knowledge they have gained about the Universe. Their secret wisdom consists of "dumb" so-called why-questions children tend to ask, such as
Why do lamas spit?
Why is water wet?
Why is the earth round?
Why is snow always white?
Why is the Dead Sea dead? etc.
Frack, the penguin, humourously reveals over forty secrets: No dictionnary wisdom, but philosophical answers to many questions.
