Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Those who wish to expand the horizon to include all modes of transport will pore over the pages of Go! The Whole World of Transportation by Samone Bos et al., with a holographic cover that literally depicts a plane, car and boat in motion. The oblong trim size accommodates stunning photos of harbors and the computer screen of an air traffic controller. The thoughtful, attractive design incorporates inset photos with full-bleed images, byte-size information and brief explanations. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Gr 5 Up
Fasten your seatbelts for plenty of transportation thrills. The skilled team that completed this jam-packed compilation of facts and photos traveled 116,545 miles. On their visits to countries across the globe, they took 2000 bus, 10 ferry, and 3000 train rides to document this handsome volume. A fighter jet, a red sports car, and a speed boat race across the eye-catching red, yellow, green, and blue striped holographic cover. The volume is divided into three chunky sections with data and photos grouped into categories. Each section overflows with crisp, well-composed photos that range in size from foldout spreads to pictures the size of postage stamps. Photo captions swell with factual details. A time line of historical developments for each mode of transportation opens each section. Some articles are quite unusual. The section on air transportation, for instance, discusses collectible air-sickness bags. The text consists of short paragraphs surrounded by a plethora of photo captions. Font size varies throughout. Some pages are meant to be read horizontally and others vertically. Fascinating foldout spreads show components used in building a racing sailboat, a racing motorcycle, and light aircraft. Readers learn about the Delhi bus system, a Gibbs Aquada water-and-land vehicle, plane production, and more. Great as a browsing item, this publication is destined to fly off library shelves.
