Description

Have you ever wondered how a dinosaur would measure up against the Great Pyramids of Giza, if a hummingbird could outfly a jet plane, or how many atoms could fit inside a grain of sand? These are just some of the questions explored in this extraordinary book of comparisons.Detailed images drawn to scale, informative text and unexpected visual analogies will help the reader to comprehend just how fast, how strong, how small and how big things really are. With stunning Victorian-style artwork by award-winning illustrator Page Tsou, this visual feast of a compendium will surprise and delight inquisitive minds in equal measure.Peek inside and discover a beetle that is stronger than an elephant, meet the pterosaur that was bigger than a spitfire and explore the furthest reaches of the known universe.
