Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Brandon West
Did you know that there are over 800 models of Hot Wheels toy cars? If this fact is exciting to you or a young reader near you, then this book is for you. This 96-page book filled with fun facts, history, and statistics of the popular toy cars. The initial pages are filled with a Hot Wheels historical timeline, a diagram of the interior of a car, and a section dedicated on how to be a Hot Wheels collector, which includes information on how to identify the rarity of the toys based on the packaging labels. The bulk of this book is dedicated the profile of 150 different vehicles, which span various series, such as “City Cars,” “Imagination Cars,” “Stunt Cars” and more. The profiles offer a brief biography on each vehicle that includes a birth date, birthplace, designer, and the vehicle’s specialty, such as its ability to pull wheelies or top speed. The illustrations are fun to look at and are accurate representations of the toys. Some of text might be a bit advanced for emergent readers, but the visuals make it enjoyable to peruse regardless of ability. This book comes packaged with an exclusive Hot Wheels car that will likely catch the eye of children. Overall, this book is best for Hot Wheels fans and collectors. Reviewer: Brandon West; Ages 5 to 9.
