You may very well be fast on your feet. But if you want to win races, never race a cheetah -- no animal on earth can run faster! What's faster than a speeding cheetah? Robert E. Wells tells you. A peregrine falcon can swoop faster than a cheetah can run, but that can't even compare to an airplane, a rocket or the speed of light! Lively text and watercolors make you laugh while you learn.

The Bulletin called Wells's first book, Is a Blue Whale the Biggest Thing There Is? "...a light and easy read for science class..". Of his second book, What's Smaller Than a Pygmy Shrew? Booklist said, "Wells introduces a challenging concept in a way that will entertain and intrigue young children". Pygmy Shrew was also selected as one of the Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children for 1996 by the National Science Teachers Association and the Children's Book Council. How Do You Lift a Lion?, his exciting new book published last season, is an introduction to three simple machines.
