The Big Book of Tiny Cars: A Century of Diminutive Automotive Oddities by Russell Hayes


One of the best things about being a book blogger is getting books that you normally might not pick up and then finding out you really enjoyed them. I'm pretty far from being a car fanatic, but the car on the cover of this book was so cute and ridiculous looking that it made me laugh. THE BIG BOOK OF TINY CARS is basically a compendium of, yes, tiny cars throughout history, separated by decade. It's beautifully laid out with tons of photos, with specific models getting their own headlines. Scattered throughout are a number of little trivia facts about the cars, as well, such as the fact that Ned Flanders drives a Geo Metro, or that Google basically developed a self-driving car for display purposes only. (Why? To prove they could?)

I think this would be a great gift for the car nut in your life. It's also just a really nice coffee table book and would be sure to capture the interest of guests. 

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!

3.5 to 4 out of 5 stars
