In this intriguing volume, noted monstrologist and alienologist Johan Olander reveals the works of the talented inventor Lady Regina Bonquers III, a genius recluse who mysteriously disappeared in 1972. The collection includes some of the most fascinating robots ever seen -- and some never before seen. Shown here are Lady Regina's sketches and notes, as well as marketing brochures, newspaper articles, and other artifacts of these machines.
Inside you'll find interplanetary battle bots; giant firefighting robots; building bots going berserk; a pocket-sized Personal Grooming Robot (for plucking unwanted nose hairs); the snuggliest, cuddliest hugging robot you've ever seen; and much more!
Discover these amazing inventions and form your own theories about what really happened to Lady Bonquers. The imaginative text and artwork combined with an elaborate steampunk-inspired design make for an engaging package that will have kids dreaming up their own robots.
"Each chapter chronicles one of Lady Bonquers’s robots, from inspiration to internal workings, and many with colossal commercial downfalls....The page borders and headings are steampunk in style with flourishes created not by ink, but by washers, gears, and screw heads. This title will appeal to the subset of kids who enjoy DIY tinkering, creative problem-solving, programming, scientific jargon, and wry humor." -- School Library Journal
