Children's LiteratureOkay, so you're not crazy about your kid's current fascination with giant-tired trucks. But you can sneak in a little reading time by offering a copy of Monster Trucks, another in the "Wild Rides!" series. The easy-to-read reference work explains the origins of Bigfoot and other famous car-crushers. It will give your child something new to talk about, such as the fact that the original monster trucks were steel-bodied terrors weighing as much as 18,000 pounds, or that their engines can churn out as much as 1,600 horsepower. Hey, at least the kid is reading. And if you're a teacher or librarian, this book is a powerful temptation to reluctant readers who happen to be car-crazy. 2002, Capstone High-Interest Books, $21.26. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Donna Freedman
