Rose grew up in Northumberland, studied Physiology at Oxford and looked after orphaned orangutans for a bit. She worked in the charity sector for ten years, writing about issues from renewable energy, to the safety of workers in Bangladesh. For Usborne, she's written books about engineering, business, computers and the environment.
An inspirational and perfectly engineered introduction to the
exciting world of engineering.

A fantastic showcase of how creative, varied and inventive engineering can be.
An absolutely gorgeous hardback book with beautiful illustrations and as you would expect, thoroughly researched text from Usborne. And there are literally hundreds of flaps to help you understand what is going on beneath the surface. Highly Recommended.
Whether at school, at the library or on their own bookshelf at home, I’m sure this eye-opening book will help inspire many budding inventors and engineers to think about how they could change the world.
