A spectacular pop-up celebration of ships from a bestselling novelty-book creator.
This follow-up to Trains and Flight covers all types of water transport, from canoes to clippers, steamers to submarines. Open up an ocean liner and see the many decks, make the oars of a Greek bireme row in rhythm and be the master of your own fold-out port. There's much to discover, with spreads covering early ships, sailing, the age of steam, fighting ships and modern vessels. Packed with pop-ups, pull-tabs and flaps, the interactive fun combines with fascinating facts for a great lesson in transport history.
