Ten illustrators place ten subjects under the microscope to help readers look beneath the surface. From famous landmarks to fruit and the natural world to vehicles, this book offers a fresh perspective by looking at 101 wonders of the world from the outside, in.''
The illustrators chose familiar and unfamiliar areas to focus on, such as homes, space, landmarks, and vegetables. Each artist gets a spread with full-page foldout flaps. The illustrators' drawing styles are different and range from slightly comic to exquisitely detailed. The visuals are intricate and intriguing and invite readers to find out more. Simple diagrams discuss concepts, and dotted lines are used to label parts and lead from the artwork to explanatory boxes of text.
