Book Review: Mechanica

Mechanica: a Beginners Field Guide, by Lance Balchin


“Welcome to future Earth”. Due to humankind’s exploitation of resources and increasing pollution, Earth has become uninhabitable for wildlife. Plants and animals are now extinct and humans have created replacement robotic species which look and behave like the lost species. But then what happens???

The book commences with a brief history and then features a double page spread of details and statistics for each ‘Mechanica’.

Mechanica is an original and engaging guide to these creatures of the future. The book is in large picture book format, and aimed at older primary school children.

Check out the amazing book trailer – you’ll be hooked to find out more!

“Mechanica” is available in the school library, public libraries, and bookshops.
