These and other mind-bending questions are answered in this explanation text about how toys work.* Gold/Band 9 fiction books offer developing readers literary language and stories with distinctive characters.* Text type - An explanation text.* A table on pages 20 and 21 summarises what makes each toy featured in the book work, for example, magnets, friction or gravity.
