I thought it would have ALL of the characters since it is called an encyclopedia but it didn't. It showed various kinds of the same character but didn't show all the cars that my son has but doesn't know the names of them.

This would better have been titled a "Diecast Catalog" rather than a "Character Encyclopedia", since the characters included are only those for which a diecast model has been issued. For "Cars" that seems to be a fairly complete selection, and all of the many variations issued for each seem to be included. For "Cars 2", though, there are a number of obvious omissions. (Where, for instance, is Siddeley, the jet?)

I also object to the fact that for some characters, the listed "Vehicle" on which it is based is fictitious, even when the character was obviously based on a real vehicle. For instance, it is fairly well known that Professor Z was a Zundapp Janus, that Max Schnell was a Mercedes, that Victor H. was a Yugo and that the Queen was a Rolls Royce.

Nevertheless, I appreciate the details provided for each car, and seeing all of the variations on Mater (as seen in his dreams!) in the back of the book is worth the price of admission. The comprehensive index, which lists the location of every variation, is welcome. This book is for everyone who likes the "Cars" movies, and not just the kids!

I hope that Pixar and DK eventually do an updated edition which includes EVERY identifiable character seen in either movie and the short subjects (whether issued as a diecast or not), and that they do it as a much slimmer book that omits the free diecast and poster. (The actual printed material is only about 1/3 the total thickness of this book, and I'm not sure I have room on my bookshelf!)

(P.S. The book "Meet the Cars" is actually much more complete, though it doesn't show all of the variations found in the diecasts.)

My 9 year old is a reluctant reader so I got this book for him since he is really in to the Disney Pixar Car movies right now. He LOVES this book. He has read all the descriptions of the cars front to back. I just love that he is reading. It came with a Lightening McQueen car which we didn't notice in the description when ordering so that was a nice surprise. Very Happy with our Purchase.

Nice product, exactly what I wanted. The included Lightning McQueen was also nice but I don't think I will be removing him from the package.

This was a gift for my 46 year-old brother who has always enjoyed pixar movies and also is a diecast car collector. He called the day after Christmas and told me how much he has enjoyed reading it. He is hard to buy for and this was a great gift for him!

The book was nicely organised and packed with in depth information about (most) toy cars that are available in the market, including some very rare versions that can hardly be find. A must-have reference to all cars toy collectors !
