Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Chevrolet, Ford's chief rival, made several popular cars, that were cheap and very reliable but they were slow. An engineer, Harley Earl, decided to create a more exciting model. It is interesting to note that Harley Earl is being referred to in Chevrolet's advertisement during their 2003 and 2004 TV advertising campaign. Mr. Earl designed the Corvette sports car which began selling in 1953. By 1959, after placing a more powerful engine in it, Corvettes were winning races. Until gas prices spiked, the Corvette was popular. Each year the company kept improving the Corvette. It was fast, had a beautiful interior and sleek body design. Even today there are people who like the older Corvette. I have often seen them in parades and auto shows. I still remember the wife of the mayor's aid whizzing around New Haven, CT. in her light green Corvette. The photos are stunning, the history and description of the Corvette is clear and easy to read. Young people, especially those infatuated with cars, will particularly treasure this book. This is a part of the "Classic Cars" series of the Imagination Library. 2002, Garth Stevens Publishing, Ages 8 to 12.
