About the Author:

Anne Rockwell is a pioneer in the field of nonfiction for very young children. She has more than a hundred books to her credit, including Why Are the Ice Caps Melting? and Clouds in the Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. She lives in Greenwich, Connecticut.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1–3—Rockwell presents the basic facts about how gasoline is produced, how it was first discovered, and its uses. She then discusses how gasoline and other fossil fuels, as they have become more and more widely used, have contributed to polluting the environment. Suggestions are offered on how to cut back our gas consumption, and alternatives such as solar power, wind power, nuclear energy, and alternative fuels are addressed. The author neglects hydroelectricity. Detailed pen-and-ink and watercolor drawings in shades of blue and brown appear throughout, and text balloons help provide humor to various scenarios. Additional facts about gasoline are appended. Nigel Saunders and Steven Chapman's Fossil Fuel (Raintree, 2006) goes into more detail about the processing of petroleum products as well as problems and solutions associated with them.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
