Lightning Was Here: A Road Trip Through the World of Cars - Calliope Glass

Released November 2010

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Youngsters three and older are invited to join Lightning McQueen on a tour of Radiator Springs. The popular CARS character raced his way into the hearts of children who enjoyed the Pixar movies and this picture book gives them a chance to see more of the places and characters that made the film so popular.

After a stop at the speedway where it all began for Lightning, it’s off to the Cozy Cone Motel, Mater’s Tow Yard, Flo’s V8 CafĂ©, and other popular hangouts around town.

The illustrations with little sidebar boxes pointing out special features on the full page spreads and the narrative combine to offer a total picture of what makes this car Mecca tick.

If your child has enjoyed this series of books and the movies, this book is a must purchase. They’ll be thrilled with the 56-page tour of this very cool town!
