What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
Gr. 4-7. The wife of a former Indy 500 race-car driver, Pimm conveys trackside excitement and presents the history, traditions, and technology behind the Indianapolis 500 race as she discusses the cars, engines, tires, cockpits, drivers, pit stops, crashes, and flags that young fans might see there. With an illustration or sidebar on each page and a light-gray-and-white checkerboard underlying the text at the top and bottom borders, the pages are colorful but busy. Despite the visual distractions, the informative text is well worth reading. The sidebars, which frequently include photos, are equally informative. The book lacks source notes or an index. It concludes with a glossary, a list of Web sites, and a bibliography that includes interviews with notable racing figures such as Mario Andretti, Rick Mears, and Buddy Rice, who are quoted in the book. The excellent jacket design beckons readers. Carolyn Phelan
