This book has been 19 years in the making.
From the time I was 5 years old, I’ve loved numbers. But not just numbers – BIG numbers, the bigger the better! I already knew a million, a billion, and a trillion, but what came next? About a few years later, I searched Google. Quintillion, sextillion, septillion . . . Wow, incredible! I thought. I copied all my numbers down, color-coded them and made them different sizes, and created my very first book.
A few years later, while watching a game show on TV, the contestant was given the names of four gigantic numbers. One of them was fake, and she had to figure out which one. Not only did she not know the answer, no one in my family did either. I loved knowing something none of the adults around me knew.
