Description
Step inside the detailed world of Stephen Biesty and find out how a wide variety of curious things are made, from tower blocks and underground tunnels; to the milk, chocolate, and donuts on your table; to matches, diamond rings, and sports shoes--not to mention race cars, planes, and rockets. The incredible artwork will have children and adults alike poring over every detail, whether it's following the production line inside a factory making anything from nails to newspapers or exploring every intricate part inside a Boeing 777 plane or the Saturn V rocket. Taking you through every stage of each process is Chester the Tester, a character who helps explain how things are made, along with his sidekick Hector the Inspector. This amazing book is also packed with unbelievable information. Did you know that dinosaur skeletons in museums are not real fossils? Or that the Boeing 777 has slam-proof toilet lids so the noise doesn't disturb passengers? Clearly written with humour and fascinating facts to guide you through the intricate illustrations, this book is a glorious way to learn about the world around you.
Target Audience
