Why are peanuts listed as an ingredient in plain M&Ms?
Why is Barbie’s hair made out of nylon, but Ken’s hair is plastic?
What makes up the ever-mysterious “new-car smell”?

Part of the Imponderables® series, Do Penguins Have Knees? arms readers with the knowledge about everyday life that encyclopedias, dictionaries, and almanacs just don’t have. And think about it, where else are you going to get to the bottom of how beer was kept cold in the Old West?
