Description - Stephen Biesty's Incredible Cross-Sections of Everything by Richard Platt

In this 25th anniversary edition, Stephen Biesty and Richard Platt combine incredible, detailed illustrations and trademark humour to take the reader inside and around the human body, to show and explain how it works.
How many rivets and bolts hold the wings of a Boeing 777 plane together? Why does an astronaut's space suit have a layer of liquid-cooled underwear? Who puts the jam in doughnuts?

Find out the answers to these questions and much, much more in Stephen Biesty's Incredible Cross-Sections of Everything. His intricate artwork will have children and adults alike poring over every detail, whether it's following the production line of a factory making newspapers or exploring the insides of 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.

Written with humour and fascinating facts to guide you through the illustrations, this book is a glorious way to learn about the world around you.

First published 25 years ago, Stephen Biesty's Incredible Cross-Sections series has been updated for the silver anniversary, bringing delight to a whole new generation of curious young readers.
