Description

Speed. What's the top speed on land? Can you go faster on water? Or in the air? What about in space? Do you know what can travel at seven miles a second? Then what about the opposite? What's the slowest thing ever? You'll be surprised! Get the facts. Then read 'All About Speed', a story about rally driving at the very limit.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
