About this title

Synopsis:

Numberland lets figures do the talking - each themed, colourful page is crammed with tonnes of fascinating number-led facts. Find out about everything from the number of Earths that would fit inside the Sun and the number of years that dinosaurs walked the Earth, to the number of centimetres of a tiny corsetted waist and the number of bubbles in a bottle of champagne! With thousands of nuggets of number information to discover, Numberland is the perfect gift for boys and girls alike. Readers will amaze friends and family with fascinating facts about almost everything! Buster favourite Andrew Pinder brings a quirky, humorous edge to the book, encapsulating interesting information in weird and wonderful compositions.
