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!
