Really Big Stuff is loaded with mind-boggling facts, super cool images, lively down-to-
earth text, laugh-out-loud bad jokes, and copious quantities of quirky information about just
about everything that is astonishingly BIG! This is just the thing to capture the curiosity and
imagination of kids and preteens aged seven to fifteen. Kids won’t only want to read this
book. They’ll want to share it with others, as well as find out more for themselves.
Reading Really Big Stuff is a great way to get kids (and adults) hooked on mathematics,
science and history, too. Like, do you know how tall you are in smoots or in London double-
decker buses? Or how beautiful you are in Helens? Do you know who invented the mile, or
who stretched the mile to make it a little bigger, and why?
Have giants ever really existed? How big was Bigfoot? Has anyone actually seen a yeti?
(Probably not yeti…). And do you know what makes us grow? And if you don’t grow as tall
as you’d like, who do you blame – your Mom or your Dad?
Really Big Stuff features include full color images, text boxes, visual gags, an index and
glossary plus fun quizzes to test your knowledge.
