Ultimate Cars Children's Book Giveaway (Sent by Carlton Books)

My youngest 2 boys have never really been impressed by vehicles, which is the opposite of my 2 oldest, who were complete petrol-heads. They'd have loved Ultimate Cars, which has been sent to us by Carlton Books and I have a copy to give away to one of my readers in my Christmas Present Giveaways...


Ultimate Cars: The World's Most Amazing Speed Machines isn't just about speed. It starts with the history of the motor vehicle and it's manufacture, and the rest of the book is split into 5 sections - Performance Cars, Iconic Cars, Crazy Cars, Racing Cars and Future Cars.


Absolutely full of original photographs and some gorgeous retouching and illustrations with a muted 50's feel, this is a book which will suit any primary school-aged child around 4+ who loves cars. They can be happy looking at the pictures until they are old enough to read the words.


The text is naturally broken into manageable chunks which are ideal for less confident readers and the language is easy for a child to understand. This is a thick book with 80 full colour pages of information and quite a lot of nostalgia too for the grown ups...


Ultimate Cars: The World's Most Amazing Speed Machines is written by Clive Gifford and published by Carlton Kids Books. 80 full colour pages and best suited to children aged around 4-10. Available to buy now priced £9.99rrp from all good bookshops, including online at Amazon*.


Carlton Kids Books have also offered a copy of Ultimate Cars: The World's Most Amazing Speed Machines as a Christmas Present for one of my readers. Entry to the giveaway is by Gleam form below. No entries are mandatory, but each extra task performed earns you extra entries into the random draw.

  17. Not travelled in a good car & only been on normal planes, but the small bus which picked us up in Jamaica to take us to our resort was definitely the most interesting & scary! We went over a bridge so fast it broke in the middle so they had to call for another one.

  20. I loved the Test Track ride in Epcot it was very fast! You got to "design" a car and see in theory how well it would do against others x

  21. It sounds silly but the best car I've been in is my own car. When I decided to learn how to drive my fiancé surprised me with my own car a week later and I absolutely love it! It's only an old 06 fiat punto, but it's my first car so it's really special to me :)
