BOOK NAME: Speed Machines
AUTHOR: Miranda Smith
It’s me again!
This time I’m going to write about a book called Speed Machines. It has all these motorized vehicles like cars, boats, airplanes and even bicycles.
My favorite section is about Cruise Boats. It shows the inside of the Voyager of the Seas cruise ship. It has an ice rink, miniature golf course, sport courts, theaters and a lot of other cool things. My parents once went on this ship!
There’s a picture of a car underwater. It’s unique because it can ride underwater and on land. The picture has two guys driving the car, wearing SCUBA masks connected to the car. And it’s a convertible! There’s no top!
The book is a big picture book with a lot of articles. I liked how much information it had. It shows all kinds of records like the fastest ride on the moon was 10.53 miles per hour. The “fastest man on earth” was Captain John Stapp of the U.S. Air Force. In 1954 he rode a rocket-propelled sled built out of welded tubes. He set a record of 6,402 miles per hour.
I recommend this book for everyone.
