Long time Copacetic fave, Dan Zettwoch takes a turn at bat in the (:01)First Second series, Science Comics, and hits a home run with Cars: Engines That Move You. This book is equal parts science and science history, and the roadmap followed is one of scientific progress, one that goes all the way back to the discovery of fire and the invention of the wheel, up through the laws of thermodynamics and even a bit of rocket science, covering engineering, physics, chemistry, archeaology, paleontology and more, in the process demonstrating just how much of human knowledge is incorporated into cars and driving.
With Zettwoch in the driver's seat, however, you know there's going to be more – and there is! Dynamic layouts accompanied by bold and brash lettering power this mighty engine of entertaining education. Readers will also come across plenty of cultural asides (with a noted emphasis on the mid-west) incorporating his own brand of madcap humor – and, of course, plenty of his amazing cut-away diagram drawings!
