How Does it Work?

How Does it Work?
An important question comes to mind when a helicopter takes off straight from the ground without building up any speed or a rocket blasts through the atmosphere: how exactly does that work? This explorative and thrilling set helps intrepid readers to answer this question, not only about rockets and helicopters, but about cars, jet planes, powerboats, and high-speed trains as well.

Series Review: How Does It Work?
"The 13 two-page chapters in each book are attractively designed. The first spread shows the featured vehicle on a bright yellow background. Numerous parts of the cutaway illustrations are labeled with one-sentence explanations of the indicated part’s function. The rest of each title is nicely arranged with black font on a bright blue background. Photos and captions, diagrams, “Fun Facts,” “That’s Amazing!” boxes, and one experiment add a considerable amount of information to the text."
