Series: Beginners plus
By Alex Frith
How many types of submarines are there? What are they used for? What is it like to live in one? This exciting, fact-packed book is illustrated with fabulous photographs, diagrams and comic strips, plus fold-out pages that reveal the hidden workings of a submarine. Includes links to websites with video clips, virtual tours and more information.
