Step inside the extraordinary 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 doughnuts on your table, via matches, diamond rings, and sports shoes - not to mention racing cars, planes, and rockets.

The incredible artwork will have children and adults alike poring over every detail, whether it's following the production line of a factory making nails or newspapers, or exploring the insides of a Boeing 777 plane and 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 brilliant 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? 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.

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.
