Gr. 5-8. Using a format that combines many illustrations with short textual explanations, Parker describes the evolution of the automobile from the earliest prototypes in the late eighteenth century to the electric- and solar-powered vehicles projected for the twenty-first century. The mechanics of the engines, transmissions, brakes, and chassis receive notice, as do aspects of safety, economy, and pollution. The eye-catching, colorful layout that devotes a double-page spread to a single topic and features large print, short paragraphs, and myriad illustrations has proved popular with middle-graders and junior-high students; even those too young to drive are not immune to the mystique of cars. This offering of Inventions in Science shows promise of a series that will attract readers through timely topics and appealing graphics. Sheilamae O'Hara
