"A lavishly illustrated, 90-page compendium of the sort of jaw-dropping statistics which children love to outdo each other." - Daily Telegraph
"This lovely book, with great illustrations by Paul Boston, is packed full of the sort of facts children love.

"The Book of Comparisons is a crazy good fact nugget tomb!" - WRD Magazine
"Definitely a book to dip in and out of, with lots of engrossing information to captivate young and old. The facts are astonishing." - Parents in Touch
