"Action-packed photos will entice readers. Each book describes the various styles of superfast vehicles and also highlights safety gear that keeps riders out of harm's way. Formula One cars and Indy cars, for instance, have harnesses and padded cockpits, but drivers still wear helmets and protective clothing. Fact boxes on each page provide extra information without distracting from the text. Glossary terms are highlighted and defined on the same page. At the back of each book, pictures of the "wild rides" are labeled for easy identification. VERDICT This high-octane series will appeal to reluctant readers. Recommended."
