This illustrated book for children shows you how things work. Look inside the human body, explore the magic of Venice, and take a tour around a movie studio - and much more!

Part of a unique series, More Incredible Cross-sections is Stephen Biesty at the top of his game. In this updated edition with a refreshed, contemporary style, he gives readers an exploded view of 12 objects, places, landmarks, and modes of transport. But look closer! In every picture is an alien who has lost his way: can you find him?

As you pore over Stephen Biesty’s superbly detailed pages, you will also discover loads of awesome facts. Did you know that steam engines were notoriously difficult to stop, leading to frequent accidents? Or that people at an Antarctic research base rely on supplies from an aircraft’s parachute drops during winter?

From windmills to cities, airports to space stations, More Incredible Cross-sections is for curious minds of any age interested in finding out how our amazing world works.

Information is updated for the 2019 edition, and the look is refreshed with a new font.

Translated into 16 languages.

Total of 2,868 hours of illustration—410 working days—went into making this book.

In almost every scene, there’s a “Where’s Waldo?” challenge to find a green alien who has lost his way!

Includes a stunning 3 ft (1 m) long gatefold spread showing the creation of a city.

Awards won through the lifetime of the series include the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Award in 1993 and The UK Literary Association Children’s Book Award 2004. In 2016, Julia Eccleshare of the Guardian chose Biesty’s Cross-Section books the best illustrated nonfiction books ever.
