How Long Does it Live?

Request a sample




Solid science presented in an entertaining, colourful and informative way. Filled with fun illustrations and time figures about extremely short- and long-lived creatures, as well as those in between.

A gall midge hatches, breeds, and dies in a 3-hour period. A bowhead whale can live for 200 years, a quahog clam 400. And box huckleberries growing today sprouted some 13,000 years ago.

A fun book to help children understand the sense of time by learning how long do animals and other creatures live.

This book combines a colourful graphic artwork with fascinating scientific facts.

From one of the trendiest artistic duo of the moment, having illustrated for The New York Times, The New Yorker, Elle magazine and Chronicle Books among others.
