Packed full of facts this wonderfully illustrated book measures and compares everything from animals, space and dinosaurs to machines, sports, and people, and will captivate children-and parents too!

Turn the pages and compare the fastest machines, the tallest buildings, the biggest animals, the world's highest fliers, and much, much more. You can trace the journey lines to discover which animal travels farthest, read the clues to match the fossil print to the dinosaur, or count up the construction workers to see how many humans it takes to measure the height of a mighty tunneling machine.
