A gigantic A380 airliner, a Saturn V moon rocket, the zeppelin Hindenburg—kids like their machines big, and this oversized book of supersized vehicles gives readers 7 to 10 plenty to see and imagine. Among these fifteen vessels you'll find famous ones like the RMS Titanic and Jacques-Yves Cousteau's Calypso, as well as the Orient Express luxury train, Captain Kidd's pirate ship, and the International Space Station, all with cutaway views into their interiors and lots of numbered details. Here too are more everyday vehicles that are still big and fascinating, including a ladder fire engine, a Sherman tank, a canal houseboat, and an enormous tunnel boring machine.
