ThrustSSC

Fact: Engineer James Watt (1736–1819) coined the term “horsepower”. It measures an engine’s power by comparing it to the amount of work a horse can do.

Bloodhound SSC Bloodhound SSC is another British built rocket car. It is designed to go even faster than ThrustSSC. It hopes to use a jet engine to reach about 370 km (230 miles) per hour. Then it will fire a rocket to reach more than 1,600 km (1,000 miles) per hour. At full speed, the engine will run at about 80,000 horsepower. That’s equal to the power of 95 Formula One racing cars.

SUMMARY An enchanting guide for anyone who’s ever dreamt of being a fairy. Did you know that fairies can be short, small, fat, tall, or thin? Whatever they look like, all fairies are very clever and very magical. And have you ever wondered where fairies live? This offbeat and highly amusing guide describes the essentials for any child who decides to become a fairy: a magic wand, flying shoes, a cloak of invisibility, glitter, and a regal expression. Full of imagination and a quirky sense of humor that will hit kids' funny bone, this is a hugely entertaining book on the upside-down world of fairies. And there could be no better person to illustrate it than Lucy Loveheart, who must have been a fairy once herself.

SUMMARY Did you know that some pirates are big and strong while others are tall and thin and cunning? Pirates can come in many different shapes and sizes, but all are very, very wicked!!! If you want to be a pirate, you'll need an eye patch, a polka-dot handkerchief, a wooden leg or hook, earrings...and this book! Did you know that the pirate code stipulates that pirates can never be kind to children? Do you know where pirates work? Actually, pirates sail the Seven Seas looking for ships to rob, so they usually don't make it home for dinner. And sometimes, when the captain gets really angry, a pirate will be thrown overboard, so it's a good idea to take lessons in walking the plank. Children will devour the information in this book. It’s funny and entertaining, amusingly twisted, and will appeal to that insatiable interest in the wicked world of pirates. With such a warped take on the topic, only an irreverent illustrator like Lucy Blackheart could do it justice.
