Following Trains , Flight , and Ships , this interactive book features automobiles throughout history. Except for the final spread, the pages read vertically, as the book explores vehicles from the ordinary (the Citroën 2CV and Fiat 500) to the exotic (a pop-up 1929 Bugatti Type 41 Royale and a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, with liftable gull-wing door). Kids into faster cars will like the final scene: a racetrack with pull-tabs that allow them to get in on the action. Full of trivia, history, and effects that should delight the auto-obsessed. Ages 6–up. (Oct.)
