Marvellous Machines Summary

Marvellous Machines: A Magic Lens Book by Jane Wilsher

In this eye-catching book, readers can explore the hidden inner workings of machines and inventions, from mundane objects such as toasters and bicycles to cutting edge technologies such as pill-sized medical robots and super-fast maglev trains. Readers use the see-through magic lens to reveal how things work and the elements hidden within machines - everything from wires and pipes to the magnetic and gravitational forces machines rely on to function.

Accompanying text explains how these machines function, how they affect our daily lives, and the physical and chemical phenomena that enable them to work.

The ideal book for scientifically-minded young readers to pore over ... Bright illustrations and quick-witted text offers a fun but informative reading experience ... Fascinating reading.

This eye-catching book takes you inside the machine, inside the invention, showing you the inner workings - pipes, wires, chemical phenomena - that make it work.

* Armadillo Magazine *

The lens offers an exciting extra by showing all the elements hidden within the machines ... Add on Jane Wilsher's witty and engaging text, which explains all the scientific concepts in simple terms, perfectly partnered by Andres Lozano's bright and child-friendly illustrations, and this magnificent and marvellous book is the ideal gift for budding scientists, and any inquisitive child.

-- Pam Norfolk * Lancashire Evening Post *

The cleverly designed hardback lets children explore the workings of familiar and unfamiliar scenes ... A great way to encourage reading for retrieval and comprehension in reluctant and less able upper KS2 readers.
