A fantastic showcase of how creative, varied and inventive engineering can be.
An absolutely gorgeous hardback book with beautiful illustrations and as you would expect, thoroughly researched text from Usborne. And there are literally hundreds of flaps to help you understand what is going on beneath the surface. Highly Recommended.
Whether at school, at the library or on their own bookshelf at home, I’m sure this eye-opening book will help inspire many budding inventors and engineers to think about how they could change the world.
