    All the electricity powering the internet weighs the same as an apricot; the world's biggest truck could carry 90 elephants; and the average person walks up to a distance of more than 64,000 miles in their lifetime.
    DK's It Can't Be True 2 is full of facts that are strange but true - and many of them are backed up by awe-inspiring visual comparisons.

    Mind-boggling from start to finish, this fascinating non-fiction book reveals how all of the world's continents can fit into the pacific ocean; the world's trees could fill North and South America; and a hippo's mouth can open wide enough to swallow a car whole.

    Ideal for those who prefer non-fiction, this is a book that will delight adults just as much as children with its jaw-dropping visuals and incredible facts.
