    Review quote
    Perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2, a mix of facts, humour and novelty flaps...This series is proof that the right non-fiction still sells' - The Bookseller; 'A hands-on science lesson!' - Lancashire Evening Post; A super collection of information books from Usborne, which really engage the reader by providing interesting information, colourful graphics and plenty of flaps with yet more information' - Parents in Touch; 'From simple machines (cogs, pulleys, levers) to planes, vehicles and microwaves, How things work reveals the science behind how things work and offers 90 flaps to lift and fantastic, detailed illustrations' - The School Run; 'A big bright book with robust pages. Familiar objects, from domestic to industrial, are described on every page and then you lift the flap to find out how they work. So, look inside the piano to see the hammer action, lift the flap on the loo to see how ballcocks work. Check out zips and ballpoint pens. Large machines, like excavators, have more than one flap and a lot of information is packed into small spaces. A book to talk about and maybe follow up on the related website' - Carousel; 'This is a thoroughly modern information book: highly visual, interactive and linked to websites. In each example the main picture shows the external structure and you lift the flap for an explanation of how the machine works. The copious yet clear annotation shows young readers the importance of the verbal as well as the visual in texts that explain...deserves a place on the Primary school science shelf' - Books for Keeps
