Full Speed Ahead! How Fast Things Go by Cruschiform


Full Speed Ahead! How Fast Things Go by Cruschiform

Did you know a tornado travels faster than a racecar? Full Speed Ahead! directly compares the speeds of animals, modes of transport and forces of nature in a clear and visually-striking album format. Objects are grouped from slowest to fastest, with objects of the same speed on the same spread, creating fascinating match races. The bright, vintage-style illustrations by French design firm Cruschiform have strong crossover and museum appeal. A glossary in the back matter gives additional information on each object.


As art...this is a volume well worth having. --J. B. Petty Booklist (12/01/2014)

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
