In five sections – Early Cars, Supercars, Everyday Cars, Record-breaking Cars and Racing Cars – this well engineered pop-up book contains much to interest and inform young motor car enthusiasts and some older readers too. The first four sections introduce the readers to the category of car and describe typical examples through annotated pictures, pop-ups, flaps and pull-outs. The final section, Racing Cars, gets an impressive three page spread with a pop-up grandstand and pits, and includes useful information about F1 and Stock Car Racing. Keeping up to date is a challenge of course – young fans of Top Gear will know that new Everyday Cars and Supercars are created all the time!
The language used in the text accompanying the drawings of the different cars is sometimes challenging and includes technical and specialist terms, but the young car lover will want this level of detail and their interest will carry them through.
