The Big Countdown
By Paul Rockett
Count down your world with an amazing mix of numbers, facts and stats; from the biggest to the smallest
You can count the number of legs on a spider, but can you count the number of stars in the Universe? Or the number of breaths we take each day? The Big Countdown explores the world through numbers, looking at rainforests, outer space, the animal kingdom the human body and much more.
This book counts you down from 70 sextillion to 0.01, bringing facts and figures to life with illustrations, fun infographics and photographs.
Since landing on planet Earth, Paul Rockett has spent much of his time reading up on the adventures of human life, while also experiencing a few of his own. In his quest to find out more about his chosen home planet, Paul has travelled, doodled, eaten a lot of food, plundered dusty libraries and gazed out of windows. Having gathered together a vast amount of fascinating data, it is now his mission to present as much as he can in interesting ways, so that any passing Martian can see how brilliant life is on Earth.
