About the Author:

Ian Graham has written more than one hundred non-fiction books and numerous magazine articles on video, computers, electronics and communications. After taking a degree in applied physics and a post-graduate diploma in journalism at the City University, London, he worked for three years as an editor in consumer electronics magazines before turning freelance. His book 'How it works: Helicopters' received a commendation in that year's Science Book Prizes and he has also had books selected as 'Books for the Teen Age' by the US Library of Congress.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6–Youngsters who enjoy construction and superstructures will be delighted with these titles. Each one features nine of the most representative examples of each type of structure. Most are relatively new, but not all, e.g., the New York City subway. Attractively designed, each page features half- to full-page color photos, with some of the text occasionally superimposed on the images. Three paragraphs of three to five sentences each do a remarkable job of describing the edifice and the type of construction. Additional information such as length, capacity, location, year of completion, method of construction, and the name of the designer is listed in a fact-file box. “Amazing Facts” appear in a separate box. Additional drawings complement the texts. The bold font varies from black on color to white on black. Captions in goldenrod-colored boxes are sometimes repetitive of the text. Unfamiliar words are in a bold font and are defined in a glossary. The introductory and concluding chapters are an asset. Unfortunately, there are no maps to show the locations of the structures or pronunciation guides. The description of the jumbo drill in Tunnels is difficult to visualize, but that is not enough to keep these titles off the shelves.–Eldon Younce, Anthony Public Library, KSα(c) Copyright 2010.
