This book is designed to support poor readers by giving them overtly adult material but where the language has been calculated using a reading age scale on a computer program. Read about the unique engineering challenges that were overcome to create a bus that had a deck low enough to get under regional bridges and carry people in comfort. We read how engineers overcame the uncomfortable Lowbridge double decker layout by replacing it with a lower chassis frame that was integrated with the body and fitting a drop centre rear axle so there was no step from the rear platform into the lower salon. We read how Wing Commander Cave-Browne-Cave the Professor of Engineering at Southampton University engineered the two small engine radiators above the driver's cab door level at the front of the bus. Finally we read how the bus featured as a major start in the 1970's hit movie Holiday on the Buses. The material in this book should be accessible to an year 8 student and as such should be ideal reading material for the vast majority of students in schools and F.E. colleges. This book is in a series on old technology and is specifically designed to develop reading in teenage males. We were asked by a Midlands College to provide something that encouraged young males to read, since they were literally not reading anything. Since many of them will be weak readers, the book also comes with an audio recording on a disc. The student can then, if they need to, listen to the audio as they read. This will be of interest to schools, colleges and academies where there are reluctant readers.
