Ages 5-9. Schwartz, the author of How Much Is a Million? (1985), tackles ratio and proportion and once again shows the same knack for wowing his audience with plain facts stated in startling ways. Here he uses images from the animal kingdom to dramatize ideas of proportion: "If you were as strong as an ANT . . . you could lift a car!" and "If you high-jumped like a FLEA . . . you could land on Lady Liberty's torch!" Warhola's pleasing, colorful paintings make the most of the visual humor inherent in the images. Although the main text is quite short, the last few pages discuss each marvel in more detail and show the ratio used to calculate it. Instantly appealing, this picture book makes its subject accessible by taking the fear out of it. A welcome addition to classroom units on proportion.
