Whether you're a fourth grader doing a natural science unit at school or a thirty year old with a secret passion for airplanes, these books are for you!In this volume, you'll learn where cars came from and how they work. When you pop the hood, what are you looking at? How does gasoline-or electric batteries, or even steam-make a car move? Rev up your motor and take look at the combustible history of the automobile and its explosive effects on our modern lives.

Critic Reviews

“"The winding scenery that gives this journey warmth is historical anecdotes...Zettwoch imbues his visually dense pages with personality and flow befitting his subject." -- Booklist "This breezy spin through the past, present, and (near) future of cars and related vehicles speeds down a well-traveled road, but its graphic format will give it particular appeal to readers years away from learner's permits." -- School Library Journal”

Praise for the Science Comics series:

"This series--written by a handful of authors--seems determined to offer a useful introduction to anything a curious grade-school student might wonder about. The insight behind these books is a powerful one. So much information about the world around us is actually better conveyed visually, through charts, illustrations, and sequential panels, than purely using words." --New York Times

"Like having a Time Life Science Library in comic books. Which is awesome!" --Popular Science
