The Story of the Car
Motoring journalist and historian Giles Chapman will need no introduction to CM readers as the author of Britain’s Toy
Car Wars, The Reliant Robin and numerous other bestselling automotive titles. Although The Story of the Car is nominally aimed at children and traces the history of motoring from the first Benz motor wagon to the record-breaking Thrustssc, the absolutely gorgeous illustrations by the design and illustration collective Us Now will be equally irresistible to adults. You’ll be tempted to buy a copy for your favourite car-mad youngster and get one for yourself, too!
The large-format hardback The Story of the Car has full colour illustrations throughout and is published by Hachette Children’s Group at £12.99. It’s available from
hachettechildrens.co.uk, Amazon and other good booksellers.
