Zoom, zoom. Phil Edmonston, the author of the best-selling Lemon-Aid car guides, teams up with librarian Maureen Sawa on Car Smarts: H ot Tips for the Car Crazy. The pair cover automotive history, how a car works, car design, features of a good car, car ownership, and the future outlook for cars. A glossary and listing of Internet sites, books and museums round out this information-packed volume. Though it is targeted at 9- to 14-year-olds, older readers will find it interesting and useful, particularly the section on buying a car. Gordon Sauve’s artwork does the subject justice and provides the book with a sophisticated look. mRb
