    "Old bedtime favourite returns..." Great to see Making a Car back in print. As a child with an interest in cars both toy and real, I read this book frequently and was endlessly fascinated by the description of the production process and the brilliant illustrations. I am sure many other young people with an interest in cars would welcome a copy of this book...
