Though there are plenty of large numbers, like 347,991, all the numbers you remember from childhood are also present. The number 9 is a scene-stealer, as usual. I'm told that the Count from Sesame Street had a hand in the editing, and I was able to detect his influence here and there.
My only suggestion is that there should be a character map at the begining of the book, like they have at the beginning of a play. Whenever the number 5.4% came up, I racked my brains trying to remember if that was the same 5.4% that had appeared a hundred pages ago as the unemployment rate. Or was it rate of increase in air pollution measurements over major urban areas? I don't know. But a quick character map would have cleared it right up, saving me a lot of flipping back and forth.
But, if you're ever interested in "the numbers", this book is usually the best place to start.
