Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One of nine titles in the "Robot" series (based on the Twentieth Century Fox film "Robots"), this book derives from scenes early in the movie and introduces us to Rodney Copperbottom, the little robot with big ideas. Determined to be like his hero, Bigweld, the head inventor of Bigweld Industries, Rodney begin working on his own invention, the Wonderbot. After a number of setbacks, he finally creates a dishwasher Wonderbot that he hopes will make his father's job an easier one. But as with many great inventions, the Wonderbot is misunderstood by his father's boss, and Rodney finds himself accused of creating problems. As we near the end of the book, we find Rodney determining that he must head off to the big city, a place where his big ideas might be more acceptable. The book is a bit disjointed because it moves so broadly from the beginning to the generalized end of the movie; nevertheless, kids who enjoyed the movie will probably enjoy this book. 2005, HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 6 to 10.
