Description

"How big is big? A super-fat pig? A giant tomato? A skyscraper potato? No, bigness is something that's hard to harpoon, Like how many oceans Fit into the moon." Measurement is fun! Questions like, how fast do you have to walk to stay on top of the water? How much does the earth weigh in Big Macs? These are just some of the issues taken to task by Globe and Mail science writer Stephen Strauss in this delightfully irreverent yet remarkably understandable book of concept poems, with Mr. Bug as your guide. (2000)
