Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - John D. Orsborn
The roaring of an engine, a spray of mud, and flying through the air define the extreme sport of motocross racing. Author Mandy R. Marx provides a brief introduction into the long-standing sport of motocross racing. Motocross racing generally takes place outside and in all kinds of conditions. A volume of the "To The Extreme" series, this book will be fun to read for many younger or reluctant readers. As with other "Blazers" books, there are factoid balloons throughout the text and action-packed photography. The author begins with an attention grabbing start to a race; Following are descriptions of the equipment and safety required to race. The author then goes on to write about the professional circuit and what a racer must do to succeed. While this book does succeed in attracting readers, the low level vocabulary and minimal information make it a starting point rather than a fully informative book on the sport of motocross racing. In the back of the book there are resources for further research. Interestingly, not only does it include specific Web sites, but it also includes the "Fact Hound" site and instructions for doing research—a librarians dream. This book is a good addition for a middle school or elementary school library.
