Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“It's fun (and potentially inspiring) to see what can be created with a little imagination, an inclination for building things, and an unlimited supply of interlocking plastic blocks and widgets.” —Booklist
School Library Journal
Gr 1–5—As he did in Cool Cars & Trucks (Holt, 2009), Kenny presents simple descriptions and various ideas for creating LEGO® models, in this case: robots. The photos will inspire young builders. Particularly difficult to follow, but cool to figure out, is a delivery truck that converts itself into a delivery robot; this is just the type of challenge that enthusiasts are likely to enjoy. Additional examples suggest specific pieces that are useful for creating robot elements. Full-page color scenarios against bright white backgrounds show various settings and activities for robots in the fanciful "Robotopolis" in which robots trim trees, deliver mail, and live as families at work and play. There are small bots, strong bots, and jumbo bots. Interspersed among the images are schematics to follow for specific figures, including a "Snailmadillo" and "Wheeliebot." For LEGO enthusiasts, future engineers, and reluctant readers, this is a colorful and inspiring book. Others might be more interested in finding out about the author, a certified LEGO professional who graduated from boy model-builder to grown-up model artist.—Janet S. Thompson, Chicago Public Library
