[Tutor] Convert String to Int

'Allo All.

I know that, should you want to get an int from the user, you use
int(input("Question!")). However, what if the user wasn't that savvy and
didn't realize he/she HAD to enter a number? Program crash. Is there a way
that I can get the input as a string, check and see if it's convertible to
an integer, convert it if it is and ask them to try again if it's not?

Thanks in advance.
