    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.
