So cute, especially if you do the robot voices as you read!

cute story

After a chance meeting, a boy and a robot play together and become friends. But when the robot's power switch gets tripped accidentally, the boy fears that his new pal is ill and takes him home to help him recuperate. When the boy's nurturing does no good, he tucks the powered-down Robot into bed and falls asleep himself; later, a second bump of Robot's power switch awakens him, and he worries that the sleeping boy is "malfunctioning." This charmingly illustrated story is not as as wild-and-wacky as James Burks' Beep and Bah but nonetheless holds lots of appeal for robot-obsessed little ones.

Funny and quirky kids book that 4-5 yr olds will find really funny-well at least mine did. The theme of companionship, friendship comming in all shapes and forms- forms the core of this book. The text and images meld together perfectly. Not scary!

Cute book - reminds us that friendship is so important and that one may find it in the strangest places.

This book may not have many words but the story is incredibly sweet. My son fell in love with Robots after readying this tale of a boy and his new found friend. He now speaks in Robot! I read this to him in my robot voice and he will sometimes call me Mommy Robot and he is my boybot. :)
