From The Critics
A part of Lerner's "Need for Speed" series for young readers, this vibrant title should capture the attention of boys and girls interested in rambunctious, lively activities such as dirt bike riding and racing. The content does focus on the competitive side of motorcycles, with chapters including topics such as superbikes, dragsters, speedways, mini-motos and racers. The busy format, with numerous color photographs and colorful statistic and fact charts is well suited to this lively subject. Although the overall presentation lends itself more to pleasure reading and browsing, there are still enough facts to keep the book useful for simple, introductory school assignments.
