About this title:

Synopsis: With his on-the-mark instinct for making math fun and easy, the best-selling author of How Much Is a Million returns with another explosively energetic math book!

If your dog were the size of a dinosaur, his dinner would fill your bedroom! If the moon were the size of a marble, earth would fit in your hands! If your submarine sandwich was as big as its name, the pickle would be as big as a life raft!
Mighty math-man David Schwartz's amazing examples of relative size, and James Warhola's hilarious, literal depictions make these mind-bending math concepts crystal clear and tons of fun. Concise, easy-to-follow back matter provides equations that show just how readers can solve these fascinating, outrageous proportional problems!

From School Library Journal: Grade 2-5–Schwartz, whose How Much Is a Million? (HarperCollins, 1985) explained REALLY big numbers to young readers, now tackles proportion and relative size. The concept is complicated and the book doesn't succeed in simplifying it, even with an appendix that explains the logic behind each example. The problems seem randomly selected and the explanations, while kid-friendly, are far from concrete: If Ralphie were as tall as a redwood...his big sister could land a hook shot on top of the Washington Monument or If a chocolate bar covered the mall...each almond would be the size of a blimp. Warhola's pen-and-watercolor drawings humorously interpret each statement, but the book is only moderately effective. Children interested in the sizes of things are better served by the wonderful collages in Steve Jenkins's Actual Size (Houghton, 2004).–Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME
