Booklist Review: "This large-format book from the How to Draw series spotlights robots, from a security droid and a land walker to flying, combat, human, and mutant mecha. Though the subject will certainly catch the interest of younger children, the treatment is better suited to those with a bit of experience. Early double-page spreads offer instruction in creating perspective from different viewpoints as well as information about drawing tools and materials. Later spreads focus on rendering specific robots, with drawings typically shown in four stages, progressing from basic forms to details and shading. Arrows connect instructions to the specific areas under discussion. A glossary defines art-related terms such as chiaroscuro, proportion, and fixative as well as the subject term mecha ( walking robots controlled by a pilot, often appearing in science fiction ). Using only shades of brown and black, Bergin creates robots that many readers will want to imitate and then shows them how to do so.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2008 Booklist"
