Which is longer: the Amazon or the Nile? Where is the world’s most active volcano? Some books answer with facts alone. This one presents the facts in context.
Each two-page spread presents one of 14 record-holding natural wonders, placing it on the globe and on a continental map. A comparison chart presents the record-breaking fact in relative scale to similar features or environments, and to a more familiar control, such as the human body. Images are stunning cut-paper collage. Paperback, 32 pages. Ages 6 and up.
