When young Code falls down a hole while following a mysterious robotic
insect, he lands in a world that defies all imagination. Everything in
Mekhos is made from metal and circuitry, including the citizens-who
happen to be robots. To find his way home, Code must first cross
Mekhos's bizarre and dangerous landscape to reach the Beam Stalk. There,
an artifact known as the Robonomicon is being guarded by an evil ruler
who has plans to destroy Mekhos. Can Code free the Robonomicon, save the
robots of Mekhos from impending doom, and still get himself back to
Earth in time to catch the school bus? With its dazzling array of robots
and futuristic gadgetry, this rollicking story will hold special appeal
for boys and budding sci-fi lovers everywhere.
