Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 2- Here is the perfect alphabet book for racing fans who want to share their interest with young children. In rhyming verse that has introductory information, one or more terms are attached to each letter of the alphabet. Although a few choices are stretches, most accurately use real racing terms. "X is for X-factor-at each and every curve./Expect the unexpected and don't lose your nerve." Zenz's illustrations, in a blocky, cartoon style, convey the color and speed of the sport. Pictures of the cars feature numbers, but none of the sponsors' decals, so that readers are not exposed to advertising. Although white men dominate the characters pictured, a woman fan and a minority pit crew member appear. This book, attractively packaged with an appealing cover and end pages featuring racing flags, is sure to be popular where there is interest in stock-car racing.-Jeffrey A. French, formerly at Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library, Willowick, OH
