Hearst, Michael

Unconventional Vehicles: Forty-Five of the Strangest Submersibles, Dirigibles, Cars, Trains, Planes, and Rockets EVER

(3) 4-6 Illustrated by Hans Jenssen. Presented in alphabetical order, from the Airboard™ Personal Hovercraft to the Zil-2906 (an amphibious truck), each unusual vehicle is afforded a double-page spread featuring realistic illustrations, diagrams, and an entertaining and informative text. Hearst provides a description of the conveyance, its manufacturer, and date(s) of production. The entries include a selection of sidebars: trivia, true/false questions, technology details, "Did You Know?" boxes, the occasional silly poem, and Hearst's irreverent comments. Drive all the way through from start to finish, or chart your own course.
