"Beautiful illustrations in this book! It was well written and grabs the readers' attention. The story is great for young readers as it is simplistic enough for young kids to understand and yet the concepts are also still intriguing enough for older children to want to stay involved. I honestly think my favorite part of this book though was the illustrations. They were absolutely wonderful! Great book! Definitely recommend for someone who has a child interested in engineering or building things or even just to help teach team work!

"This is intriguing and also a challenge to classify. The mechanical drawing content is impressive, as is the cleverly depicted animal mechanics. There's no question this will find fans among anyone interested in hands-on engagement with the world around us."
