Sweet Rides


SWEET RIDES; Katherine Bailey; NY: Crabtree, 2007; 32 pgs. Juvenile Non-Fiction
Before I even started typing this review, a young man in a Corvette t-shirt came by and snapped this book up without a backward look. These are a librarian's happiest moments, and I am delighted to recommend this book to help feed young boys' apparently insatiable curiosity about cars. Who wouldn't pore over these pages without wishing for a boat-back Rolls, or a sleek silver Maserati. Minimal text and great pictures will make these a book the pre-teen dudes will crave. (One of several in the
Automania series.)
