Curious comparisons : a life-size look at the world around you

Image of item
Book

First U.S. edition.

Are you curious about numbers, size, and how something small stacks up against something big? Accompanied by fascinating facts and figures, the life-size photographs in this book answer "What if?" and "How many?" for all kinds of creatures and objects. If you unravel all the thread from a T-shirt, how many times will that thread wrap around a city block? How many flowers does a hive of bees have to visit to collect enough pollen to make a pound of honey? The answers might surprise you!
