Synopsis

Children's Encyclopedia of Transport A Comprehensive Look at the World of Transport with Hundreds of Superb Illustrations by Philip Wilkinson, Oliver Green, Ian Graham, Andrew Nahum

A fascinating, fact-filled look at the world of transport, with more than a thousand fullcolour illustrations. This fascinating encyclopedia takes a comprehensive look at the world of transport, with transport on the road, on railways, in the water, in the air and in space. Most of the pages contain a series of catalogue-style entries on a range of craft and vehicles. Each entry contains the story of the vehicle and a fact box to see at-a-glance aspects from speed and size to the number of people carried. In addition, each section contains feature pages that deal with especially interesting topics, such as Formula 1 racing, high-speed trains, and modern developments in low-energy transport.
