Should et be used instead of en?

In the sentence below, it is indicating taller and taller. Why is en used -- plus en plus? Should it be plus et plus? Ils deviennent de plus en plus grands

This relates to:
Conjugate venir, tenir and derivatives in Le Présent (present tense) -

Bonjour Ashwini,

https://french.kwiziq.com/my-languages/french/view/5012

The link above is the lesson that explains the use of «de. . . en. . .». This is an invariable phrase structure in French which is used for English phrases like: bigger and bigger, better and better, more and more, etc. I hope this is useful. bonne chance
