Preview: ‘Monstro Mechanica’ is the story of a girl, her robot, and yes, Leonardo da Vinci
It’s a book about robots, war, war profiteering, and identity. And yet, somehow, Monstro Mechanica has a whole lot more going on than you might realize.
“‘Monstro Mechanica’ is, at its heart, the story of a girl and her robot,” writer Paul Allor says. “It’s also a swashbuckling adventure tale, and a meditation on identity featuring Leonardo da Vinci, his apprentice and their mechanical bodyguard. It’s an absolutely gorgeous book and we’re incredibly proud of it.”
