Science fiction comes to life in this riveting showcase of zoobots — robots inspired by animals. Detailed reports on machines that look and behave like creepy, crawly creatures such as geckos, jellyfish and bats will encourage budding scientists to imagine the next zoobot.

Helaine Becker is an award-winning children's author. She has written over seventy books, including the #1 Canadian National Bestseller, A Porcupine in a Pine Tree. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.

... this ought to engage the imagination of future scientists---and who knows what they might create? This one won't stay on library shelves for long.

As surreal and amazing as Becker's descriptions are, they come alive through the artwork of Alex Ries and the design of Julia Naimska. Each page is beautifully planned, laid out, and illustrated.
