K-Gr 2—From their rudimentary beginnings as bicycles with engines to the high-performance models on our roads today, the motorcycles showcased within the pages of this series are described in clear, concise language that is as entertaining as it is informative. From recognizable brands, including Harley-Davidson and Yamaha, to less familiar names, such as the UK's Triumph, emerging readers are treated to full-page spreads of colorful panels and gleaming chrome, giving them up-close views of cylinders, engines, and other essential components, while shots capturing motorcycles in action are thrilling. Accompanying the vibrant photos are archival images of the people behind the machines, such as Soichiro Honda and William Harley and Arthur Davidson, putting a face (or two) to these iconic, industry-leading companies.
VERDICT Bound to be popular among gearheads in schools and public libraries.
