the inside story The DK Inside Guides demonstrate, with abundant photographs, ""how things work from the inside out,"" as each volume proclaims on the cover. Amazing Bugs lays open a locust and cross-sections a bee; Animal Homes takes readers inside a termite tower, a cocoon, an ant hill, a shell, a tidal pool and other homes; Super Structures offers slices of skyscrapers, bridges, airports and off-shore oil rigs; and Incredible Earth shows the workings of a geyser field, a volcano, a glacier, a coral reef and more. The books feature numerous models commissioned for this project.
