He is Richard Hammond who, together with Jeremy Clarkson and James May, co-present the hugely popular BBC tv series Top Gear.
Since Aqila is crazy about cars and love Top Gear programme so much I am so delighted to find this gem in the library today.
Aqila and his cousin Harsha and i were in Seng Kang library looking for books about cars and trains when Aqila spot this. We immediately put the book into our bag to secure it from other prey :P
The book is published by DK publishing, known for its wide-range of educational books for children. And Richard is apparently quite a successful author, specializing on books about science for kids. Interesting eh? :-)
What sort of things we can learn in this book? Well the book talks about history of car, it also explains about horsepower, making petrol, what is piston and how does it work, newton's laws of motion, what is acceleration, the science of airflow etc.
Numbing and mind-bloggling subjects? Not really because those subjects are explained creatively, with pictures, diaghrams, association and simple explanation. But yes...for young children, parents' guidance and further explanation is required, which i dont mind doing :-)
Actually...this is quite a good science book! If you like cars of course :-)
So...go visit the library or hunt for this book. I personally think it is worth to own one.
