An inspirational and perfectly engineered introduction to the exciting world of engineering.

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.

Fascinating Engineering Facts!
The Usborne Engineering lift the flap book is very interesting and engaging. It describes facts with detail and has fun pictures. The writing is clear and I couldn’t stop reading it. I particularly liked the Soyuz rocket explanation of how it carry supplies to the International Space Station (ISS). By Harry D (age 9)
