If I Had a Robotby Dan Yaccarino
If Phil had a robot, it would do everything he didn't want to do -- eat his brussels sprouts, take his bath, and do his homework. No one would ever pick on him again. He'd be king of the world! Dan Yaccarino's simple, lively text and exuberant retro-styled illustrations bring this bold and funny fantasy to life. "Children will start accumulating a list of jobs for a robot to take over."-- Booklist
The fantasy becomes very large, but the yearnings never leave the realm of real childhood concerns. Yaccarino (Big Brother Mike, 1992, etc.) uses the artwork, printed on matte paper, to reiterate his materialist conclusion, by subtly grounding Phil's fanciful imaginings in rotund, weighted images.
