Overview

From the minds of Scieszka and Shannon comes a tale of a quixotic robot determined to conquer the earth. The only problem is that the earth he lands on is a suburban kitchen and he is three inches tall. Robot Zot, the fearless and unstoppable warrior, leaves a trail of destruction as he encounters blenders, toasters, and televisions. But when he discovers the princess...a pink cell phone...his mission takes a new course. Robot Zot must learn how to be a hero - in the name of true love.

Editorial Reviews

Robot Zot is eager to conquer new worlds, but unfortunately, this pint-sized Napoleon is only about three inches tall. In this mission, Zot risks a dangerous foray into deep enemy territory; namely, a nicely equipped suburban kitchen. In the midst of vigorous battle with toasters and television, our robot hero falls head-over-tiny-heels in love with an astonishingly beautiful "Queen of all Earth," more recognizable to us as a toy cellphone. With renewed purpose, he vanquishes all the common household monsters, saves the day (and, of course, his queen), and departs for his next intergalactic adventure. A thoroughly enjoyable picture book sci-fi fantasy.

My 5-year-old son loves this book. He runs around quoting Robot Zot. We all think it's a funny clever book. Another hit from Scieska and Shannon!
