The blue whale is the biggest creature on Earth. But a hollow Mount Everest could hold billions of whales! And though Mount Everest is enormous, it is pretty small compared to the Earth. This book is an innovative exploration of size and proportion.

A nice concept book on relative size. Useful for units on measurement or the solar system (the book quickly moves from comparing living things to discussing outer space.) Read full review

User Review  - Rebecca - Goodreads

Really enjoy this simple introduction into the 'large' things of the universe. Great science book for small children. It tries to give you perspective of how 'big' the universe is. Fun illustrations. Read full review
