More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis J. Perry
One of the sixteen titles in "Ripley's Believe it or Not" series, this book examines some unusual cars, trucks, and rockets. Featured are: cars completely covered in thousands of coins; trips made in super market shopping carts, wheelchairs, beer kegs, couches, and lawn mowers; a monster balloon truck; and a rocket belt that enables the wearer to fly. Other bits of information relate to a ten-year-old piloting a plane, modifications to vehicles making them look like a high-heeled shoe or Cinderella's carriage, a ceramic bath tub added to a jeep, a seventeen foot tall bicycle, walking through a wheel of fire, swimming a race with tied hands, and records set for roller coaster rides. Less tightly tied to a single theme than some others in the series, the book will still appeal to youngsters who are crazy about cars and who loves bits and pieces of bizarre and fascinating information. They will flip through the pages learning tidbits of information about the weird and wonderful. The thirty-six page book is illustrated with both black-and-white and color photographs, and contains an index. Reviewer: Phyllis J. Perry
