Kort biografi
Richard Platt has published more than 100 books, 32 of which were for DK. He has written on almost every topic you can imagine, but is particularly interested in the history of science and technology, and social history. He has become a bit of an amateur expert on the subject of life at sea, smuggling, and piracy. Most of his books are illustrated information books for children, but he has also written stories for children and several for adults. Some have won prizes, including the Smarties silver prize, and a Blue Peter award. Richard also writes TV scripts and museum interpretation, and he has appeared on TV and radio.

Detailed cross-sections show how things fit together and function. Good for both architecture and mechanics lovers.

This looks like an unusual book. First of all, it's enormous. Second of all, it manages to be a little gruesome even though it's cartoony. Even though it's a fictional story, it seems like the kind of thing a kid could use for a report on ancient Rome. There's a whole section of historical notes and a bibliography in the back.

Esta obra envolvente, ilustrada, permite viajar no tempo e conhecer as vidas e descobertas dos grandes inventores a partir de uma abordagem nunca vista, desde o famoso grito de Arquimedes até os incríveis avanços atuais da Medicina e Tecnologia, como a internet e os exames de DNA.

I was so very obsessed with this book as a kid. Oddly, one of the parts I remember most vividly was checking out what all the little people were doing. And the soldier whose intestines were hanging out in the tank cross section, of course. Biesty really knows how to appeal to kids.

I'd love to reread this as an adult.
