Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This simple-to-read reference book takes young cycle enthusiasts from the original "motorcycle scrambles" of the 1920s to today's high-flying "motos." Part of the "Wild Rides!" series, it explains the mechanics of racing and the newest designs of motorcycle bodies, tires and engines. In exciting but easy-to-read terms, the book describes what goes into a successful dash through the challenging courses. Like all of the other books in this series, it offers plenty of information about what, to a child, is pretty fascinating stuff, whether or not his parents or teachers understand his interest. Also, like all the other books in the series, it mixes adrenaline with common sense by emphasizing the safety gear and training needed for this high-intensity sport. 2002, Capstone High-Interest Books, $21.26. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Donna Freedman
