The moses. Verlag is bringing out a fascinating new non-fiction book for children in which impressive comparisons are made. It is now available in stores.

Fascinating, surprising and also a bit crazy comparisons

In this book by author Clive Gifford, many things and living beings from around the world are compared in a unique way. After all, we know it well from children that they describe sizes by means of comparisons, as they are not yet able to name them well.

"Did you know that 2 football teams fit on the tongue of a blue whale?"

Furthermore, funny chains are formed:

7 budgerigars weigh as much as a clown fish, 4 clown fish together are as heavy as 1 hedgehog, 5 hedgehogs equals 1 arctic hare, 9 arctic hares equals 1 emu, and so on - in the end you need 5 humpback whales and 1 hippopotamus to get on the gigantic Weight of 142.000kg that a single blue whale brings on the scales.
