Reviewed by Jordan, Age 12

Mighty Robots is a historical journey written by David Jones. It is a fascinating book about how we see robots, and the truth about robots. In our eyes, robots are mechanical behemoths, created in our image. But of course, they are not. Robots are not the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz, but the mechanical arms in a factory.

Mighty Robots is an okay book, I learned a lot from some of the pages, but others were full of information that I already knew. This book is definitely for a younger age group. The facts came on crystal clear; nothing went over or around my head. The spotlight stayed centered on the better pages and didnít jump from subject to subject, but on the others it was full of fillers and could have been summarized into no more than 50 pages. I would not suggest this to someone who is 12+. I would suggest this to someone who is around 9-11 years old.

I give Mighty Robots 3.5 stars.
