Over 40 and a Mum to One, July 2, 2018

'The XK Files: 120 is a great read and my son and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it together.  More confident readers would have no issue with reading this book independently. Readers will enjoy the adventure and also the historical references throughout this chapter book. This is the first in a series of books and we are now eagerly awaiting The XK Files: 140.'

The Bulletin of the Vintage Sports-Car Club, Autumn 2018

'This endearing little book is a new venture for Porter Press, the first in what is intended to be a range of motoring books for children but leaves the reviewer thinking that, just like The Wind in the Willows, any parent or grandparent who buys this as a Christmas present will end up reading it from cover to cover.

'The book is entertaining and sensibly priced making it, in the modern idiom, a no-brainer. The illustrations are delightful and care has been taken to make them accurate with some surprising details, including a squadron of Gloster Meteors flying over the coronation celebrations.

'Buy a copy and read to your next generation Vintagents; it will entertain reader and listener alike but be prepared to buy future volumes including "The XK Files: 140" coming soon - why change a successful formula, it works for their Great Car Series so why not for childrens' books?'
