Beautiful picture books for older children that explore a possible future of our world as the effects of global warming spread.

Set in the twenty-third century, the book describes how Earth could no longer support wildlife. The warnings had been ignored. Corporations continued to expose the environment to chemical and radioactive waste, and many Earth species began to disappear.

By 2200, vast areas of the world had become uninhabitable and wildlife extinct. In place of the lost wildlife species, the corporations began to create Mechanica. But the Mechanica escaped their confinement, and started to develop in the wild on their own.

Filled with inventive and awe-inspiring images and details, this book is sure to spark readers' imaginations! Kids will marvel at the steampunk-inspired renderings of mechanical bugs, birds, bats, snakes, and more!

The influences of Tom Waits, George Orwell, Patti Smith and Bukowski have always led his writing and image making.
