Buckle up and start your engines!

Paul Collicutt once more shows his reverence for machines of travel in a simple, inviting survey of different kinds of cars for very young enthusiasts. While the concise text describes how cars differ from one another in size, speed, and usage, the real star is the artwork, executed in a Technicolor palette with the dramatic energy of WPA-era poster art. Cars from all periods of history are featured - from horse and buggy to space-age sound-barrier breakers - and illustrated endpapers depict notable, labeled models from around the world.
