In the companion to the acclaimed A Hundred Billion Trillion Stars, Seth Fishman and Isabel Greenberg explore the relationship between energy and the human body, breaking down complicated concepts into small, child-friendly segments. Seth Fishman’s playful text explores the science behind the most energetic kids, while Isabel Greenberg’s vibrant illustrations offer plenty for children to explore in multiple readings.

“The text presents information with clarity, humor, and, above all, wonder—both at the amazing human body and at everything it allows the child reader to do, think, learn, and discover.”
— The Horn Book

“Your pinkie, this innovative book explains, ‘has enough energy to light up one of the biggest cities in the world’ for a day.
