David Macaulay (author of The Way Things Work, Cathedral, the Caldecott-winning Black and White, and many more) will have an amazing new book out in early October. The Way We Work is a look at human anatomy from an engineering perspective, helping kids and grown-ups alike to understand the mechanics of their bodies.
Several CG staff members have been lucky to get behind-the-scenes, in-progress glimpses of The Way We Work over the last year, and we can tell you that this latest Macaulay masterpiece is exhaustively researched and illustrated in tremendous detail. Humor shines through the text and illustrations to entertain while educating.
Drop by David Macaulay's website for an interview about The Way We Work and a slide show of sneak peek illustrations. Another exciting Macaulay tidbit: he'll be launching his very own nonfiction imprint under Roaring Brook in 2011. You can pick up The Way Things Work board game downstairs in our chapter book room to help tide you over until October -- or 2011!
