A fun, wildly original, fact-packed and beautifully illustrated book by the Sears brothers, showing us how to make the world a better place

The mega human: colossal, clueless… And the biggest hope for life on earth

There are eight billion of us humans.

All breathing, eating, fidgeting and thinking deep thoughts.

It’s an unimaginably large number. Or is it?

Say hello to the mega human: all the people in the world smooshed into one spectacular giant. Even though it’s not the smartest of creatures, the mega human is slowly beginning to understand the problems it has created for Planet Earth’s future … and how it might be able to fix them.

Making use of brain-bending stats and smoosh theory, The Biggest Footprint is a journey of self-discovery suitable for anyone and everyone identifying as human.

Rob Sears & Tom Sears

Rob and Tom’s creative partnership began in the 1980s when Tom (the younger brother) was born. Now, Rob is a bestselling writer and Tom is an illustrator. They’ve created everything from zoo exhibitions and ice cream van designs to sitcoms, books, newspaper cartoons and movie scripts. They made this book as an experiment to try to understand the species that they are a part of, and that you’re most likely a part of too. Despite everything they learned, they’re still hopeful about what’s next for humans and the planet.
