From tunnels and railways to bridges and ships, Isambard Kingdom Brunel would stop at nothing to realise his amazing engineering ideas. Born at the beginning of the nineteenth century, Brunel had a brilliant brain for design, and never tired of building new and exciting things - the deepest tunnel, the longest bridge, the fastest train. For Brunel, the average and the ordinary were just not good enough. A perfectionist and a control freak, he would stop at nothing to complete a project, even when it meant taking hair-raising risks. Part of The Great Victorians - a newly designed series of entertaining and engaging biographies for children.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I love these books
A stunning collection that my children love as much as I do ... Each has its own distinct style but all are highly charged dramas... * The Observer *
Thom, Tim and Trevor have a great take on food, on foraging, on fun. It's a great recipe and everyone should have a slice.
