'A broad history, ideal for car lovers'. -- Kirkus 'This marvellous exploration of the history, design, engineering, technology and innovation of car-making is essential reading for any child with an interest in cars'. -- BookTrust 'This is a great book for children as a introduction to the world of non-fiction books'. -- Reading Zone 'Cartoon style illustrations, and short bursts of text, make it easy to navigate and find fascinating facts. I hope there will be more from Elliot Kruszynski and Prof McPaw!' -- My Shelves Are Full 'This book offers an interesting and informative history of cars with plenty of light-hearted, chatty asides!' -- North Somerset Teacher's Book Award The first in a series of books by Elliot Kruszynski, exploring the histories of modern technologies, introduced and explained by a helpful (if somewhat arrogant) dog called Professor Wooford McPaw. In this title, Professor McPaw explores the history of the car, starting with the steam engine in the early 1800s, the advent of the combustion engine in 1872, the popularisation of the car by Henry Ford in the early 1900s, the evolution of motor racing, luxury cars of the 1950s, the Japanese innovations of the 1970s, and finally the new technologies of electric and self-driving cars today. The book is engagingly illustrated by Elliot Kruszynski, whose bright, clean, informative style appeals to children across a broad age range. The Professor and his sidekick (in this case a car, but changing with each book), discuss the intricacies of historical episodes along the way, lending a humorous, personal touch. Comic strip interludes capture key moments, like the first cross-country road trip by the wife of Karl Benz, inventor of the first gas-powered car; or the advent of Ford's assembly line. Striking a refreshing balance between authoritative, clearly conveyed information, and witty, bright commentary, Professor McPaw will be a captivating tour-guide through the fascinating developments of the modern world.
