Praise For…


"The vehicles themselves are stylized but recognizable, which is a good thing because closing quizzes challenge viewers to identify 13 of them and to answer a set of questions too. The jacket folds out into a poster that depicts many of the modes of transit covered, with a submersible at the bottom and a futuristic rocket ship at the top. A spirited road trip over land and sea, through the air, into space, and a bit beyond the present day." - Kirkus Reviews
