Top Gear V8 Roaring Vibrating Engine Pencil Sharpe&hellip by TKC
I bought this as a Christmas present for my 10 year old - a big Top Gear fan. He wont be receiving it, however, as I couldn't get the battery casing to close properly - not on the original gift nor the replacement. I spent far too long fiddling with this thinking it was operator error but to no avail.

Disappointed - he would have loved this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 14 Dec 2007
My six year old son loved this book. AMS writes in a lovely traditional way for children, he doesn't patronise, use slang or try to be 'with it'. This book is a good old fashioned read, it's great to read out loud as the sentences are beautifully formed. AMS also uses some quite challenging words and expressions (challenging for young children that is) but that's really nice too, as it leads on to other discussions. The book has a limited number of illustrations and is of a decent length - it has helped my son to use his imagination more and rely on picture cues less.
