Booklist, April 1, 2007
“In their debut series for young people, the go-to publishers for automotive enthusiasts gets it right. These lavishly illustrated single-subject books, which include ‘Corvette’ and ‘Chopper,’ will be hot commodities with younger kids as well as car-obsessed teens.”
Note: The series is one of ten selected by the American Library Association as the year’s top non-fiction picks launched in the last 12 months.
“Part of a new series of books aimed at enthusiasts ages 10 upwards, and this motoring volume strikes a good balance between detail and environment. The design is busy, but it includes stunning pictures and easy-to-read text that captures the spirit and history of the US motoring icon.”June 7, 2006

“Clearly designed with the teen male in mind, these books will be good resources for teen boys doing research on the vehicles examined. The text is informative and easy to read ... The eye candy quotient is high here.
“Overall the books from this series would be a worthwhile addition to a library’s collection, especially if it is short in interesting nonfiction for young boys.”
Vette, September 2006
“Finally, a book for the kids. Corvette has an engaging quality that will keep younger readers entertained while also educating them on the history of America’s favorite sports car. ... DRFC is a refreshing counterpoint to the stuffy, jargon-filled titles common in this segment.
“So, just how did DRFC’s unique presentation sit with our older, presumably more mature editorial mindset? To be perfectly honest, the entire package had the slightly disorienting feel of a Las Vegas-themed coffee-table book illustrated by the Teletubbies. Then again, this author is well outside the intended age bracket. We gave our copy to a well-read 5-year-old, and she loved it. Factor in the quite reasonable asking price of $10, and justifying the purchase of Drive. Ride. Fly. Corvette seems like child’s play.”
