KIRKUS REVIEW

In Florian's ""How We Work"" series, a somewhat stronger entry than A Carpenter (p. 254). Though his style still doesn't really serve the subject, the impressionistic watercolors here are better disciplined to convey real information: it's easy to tell what the mechanic is working on, but not to know what he's actually doing--unless there's someone available to expand on the minimal, choppy text (almost every sentence begins, ""He...""). Fairly accurate, though replacing the oil filter is out of proper sequence; for what it's worth, this worker wears a yarmulke. Adequate but slight.
