Could have been so much better,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Disney Pixar Cars Character Encyclopedia (Hardcover)
This new book promised so much but failed to live up to expectations. First of all my son loves the book, which is who it was for. What I didn't like was that although called a character encyclopedia it doesn't list every car ever made. It fails to mention this in the description but does mention it inside the book.
The book is about 2 inches thick, with 1 inch devoted to a box to hold the free Lightning McQueen car on the front. I think I would of preferred them to have ditched the free car and made a more complete encyclopedia. I found over 20 vehicles my son has that were not listed in the book (some were mentioned but had no pictures or info).
The quality of the pages and pictures are of the usual high standard from DK.
For a child they will love it. If you are an adult collector, forget it!

This is exactly what reviews should be about. Not how great something is, or not, but what it offers and what really the item is like inside. I was wondering how comprehensive the book is and how many characters it will cover and came here to find this out. All the reviews share personal happy or sad experience that nobody is interested about. So thank you redcarracer for being so helpful. The book is supposed to be a present for my 4 years old boy who is cars mad, but I know he will be disappointed just as any adult collector would be if I get him this book. This is because he knows about the characters that are very rare and difficult to find, or have never even been made in diecast. So the book sounds very poor, unfortunately. Thanks again redcarracer for sharing.
