Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
For kids who love cars and car racing, or want to learn what it is all about, this chapter book has a lot to offer. The history of NASCAR racing with a vintage photo sets the stage. Then it is a fast start to today's stock cars, the tracks and the racers. The real focus is on four champion drivers—Richard Petty, Bill Elliot, Jeff Gordon and the late Dale Earnhardt. The writing is excellent and readers will feel like they are experiencing the race with the driver. They will get a feel for the tracks, understand the roles of those involved in supporting the driver, and appreciate the danger that these drivers face. It is a dangerous sport, but efforts have been made to create safer cars and to reduce the risk. Perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but Gutelle has written a book that will appeal to readers well beyond the stated grade range. Filled with good photographs and drawings. Part of the "All Aboard Reading" series, level 3 for grades 2-3. 2001, Grosset & Dunlop, $13.89 and $3.99. Ages 7 up. Reviewer:Marilyn Courtot
