Grade 5-7 Wildly busy pages present text on boldly colored backgrounds accompanied by screaming-yellow "Stat File" inserts and fire-engine-red "Fact File" boxes, all superimposed on large photos of monster trucks in roaring action or NASCAR racing. The texts themselves are simple to read and brief enough to lure reluctant readers into taking a chance, and the lively presentation of factoids and racing history should keep them involved. A glossary of technical terms and sport-specific lingo; some racing organization names, addresses, and Web and e-mail addresses; and an index round out the presentations. While not first-purchase considerations, these glitzy entries may spruce up aging 796.2 sections (though true aficionados will be glued to ESPN, or at the track happily inhaling the intoxicating aroma of hot engine exhaust). -Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
