Monkey Vs. Robot & The Crystal Of Powerby James Kochalka
-- Ninth Art
Deep in the forest, robots are gathering plant and animal samples, and bringing them back to Mother Computer's Knowledge
"The Monkey vs. Robot books are like the best of children's literature, in that they appeal to the joyfulness of literature and art that appeals so much to children, while adults can enjoy the structure and techniques."
-- Ninth Art
Deep in the forest, robots are gathering plant and animal samples, and bringing them back to Mother Computer's Knowledge Extractor for analysis. When one spunky monkey breaks free of the device, a short circuit burns out the power Crystal in one of Mother's Cognitive Reactors. Now, the robots must find a replacement Crystal... but the one they dig up is a sacred relic from a monkey burial ground. Will the monkey's stand for that? No way! Technology vs. nature, Science Vs. Religion... all wrapped up in non-stop action and blistering FUN!
