Spikez: Half Hedgehog, Half Machine. All Prickles: 1 by Richard Mayers
The iconic British Hedgehog gets a technological upgrade in this exciting children's novel about an unlikely bunch of animal cyborgs. Spikez and his team are sent on their most dangerous mission yet - to protect their home from total destruction after Magatron, a weaponised magpie, malfunctions.
Animals have been fused with technology in this exciting new children's novel, an action-packed, animal fable mash-up for the connected generation. Classic storytelling with technological enhancements, Spikez is the first in a series of fiction books about the dangers of man's meddling with nature.
Professor Windar's amazing team of hybrid-drones are unveiled in front of a military audience. Their purpose: to support the UK's fight against global terrorism. But when his deadliest prototype malfunctions, the local inhabitants of Greenacres find themselves entangled in a fight for survival like no other. Claws clasp, feathers fry, and microchips meddle as a new breed of hero is born. Can the future of humanity and animalkind be saved by Spikez?
