With Vroom! Motoring into the Wild World of Racing (Tundra Books), Tim Miller gives children a detailed inside glimpse into auto racing. This guide, filled with fascinating information and plenty of colour photographs, includes profiles of a boy karter and a girl junior dragster. Website addresses for more information on Formula One, rallying, and various kinds of racing (road, drag, stock car, and oval track) and a glossary of racing terms are included. Miller, a motorsport journalist and administrator of the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame in Toronto, is truly in his element here. mRb
