This illustrated book gives young readers ';a breathtaking and entirely original insight' into the complex systems that exist underneath modern cities (Kirkus, starred review).

Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator David Macaulay takes readers on a visual journey through a citys various support systemsthe many tunnels, pipes, walls, and other structures that help sustain the bustling life above. In Underground, Macaulay exposes a typical section of this intricate underground network and explains how it works.

Along with his beautiful illustrations, Macaulay presents ';a straightforward yet fascinating description of the labyrinth beneath the feet of any city dweller. And what a complex covered world [he] reveals! He invents an intersection of two streets and proceeds to show what we all might find if we dared to descend through that Alice-in-Wonderland manhole (The New York Times).
