The Magic in Wondering about a Million, Billion, and Trillion

In the book, Marvelossissimo the Mathematical Magician leads the way through a sequence of "If, then" statements about three quantities: One million (1,000,000), One billion (1,000,000,000) and One trillion (1,000,000,000,000).  The book offers answers to these questions: How high would one million/one billion/one trillion kids reach if they climbed on each other's shoulders? How big a goldfish bowl would you need to hold one million/one billion/one trillion goldfish? How long would it take to count to one million/one billion/one trillion? How many pages would one million/one billion/one trillion stars fill?
