—Publishers Weekly

Transportation buffs will enjoy the attention to detail in Lemanski’s elegant illustrations… [A] valuable reference tool, a solid contribution to the literature of technology for teens and blissful eye candy for transportation enthusiasts.
—Kirkus Reviews

A busy profusion of 100 small aircraft, trains, bikes, automobiles, and ships zoom across eight cardboard fold-out pages in this quasi-book product that also works as a six and a half-foot poster. … Images are realistic in color and proportion with a fair amount of detail, given their small size, and they are labeled by name and year. … The stacked layout provides some interesting views of varied modes of transport sharing approximate time periods. … This unique book could appeal to some children fond of car, plane, and ship models and might be of interest to libraries collecting fold-out or other toy books
—School Library Journal

[A] visual feast, this six-and-a-half-foot fold-out book features 100 images of the things that have moved us, from bicycles to trains to cars and ships. I could spend a day poring over the designs, marveling at the ingenuity and craftsmanship that brought each of these vehicles to life. Hopefully your kids will too.
