From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-Books designed to appeal to lovers of sleek, glossy, aerodynamic vehicles with muscular engines. Eye-catching and busy to the max, the layout features full-color photos of each plane, bike, or car, with text, stats, and fact files superimposed on brilliant boxes of red, magenta, maroon, blue, yellow, tan, green, purple, and orange. The chatty text sounds much like an informed guide piloting interested readers around an airfield or track, dropping data and corny statements for edification and amusement. A compilation of addresses (such as NASA and NASCAR) are offered as sources for more details. Cluttered, bright, and colorful to the point of distraction, this trio will be adored by the intended audience and ignored by everyone else.
