Every family member has certain expectations for celebrating the holidays. Excitement grows as each holiday nears — and this apparently applies to robots, too!

A centuries old, antique robot is found abandoned in the Forbidden Zone on Halloween Day. Eleven year-old twins Kasdan and Lane Montgomery are certain that with a little skill and a bit of luck they can repair him. When he awakens,

they name him Rusty. Soon “Rusty the Robot” is a valued member of this futuristic family, though his curiosity sometimes gets him and the twins into tricky situations!

Young readers will love the story of Rusty and his new life as he learns over the next year about the different holiday seasons. His enthusiastic, funny, and refreshing way of viewing family traditions and human interaction will help readers see their own lives in new ways!

“A lovely, imaginative kid’s book from two old pros. Great for young readers!”

—Steve Burt,Bram Stoker and Ray Bradbury Award-winning author for the young reader

“If you like to laugh, if you like to have adventures, you’ll love Rusty the Robot!”

—Peggy King Anderson, Author of "First Day Blues"; Co-author of "The Fall of the Red Star"

    Fifth grader, Lauren Rohde¿s review of 'Rusty the Robot¿s Holida

    Fifth grader, Lauren Rohde’s review of 'Rusty the Robot’s Holiday Adventures.'
    Rusty the Robot’s Holiday Adventures is a great book. The book is about a pair of 11-year old twins who find a robot in the woods. When
    the twins fix the robot, they enjoy the holidays and have adventures. The book was enjoyable, but some parts of the book were kind of
    confusing and weird. I like how each chapter was about a holiday and how the family celebrated. There were a lot of things in the book
    that were great, and a few that were slightly displeasing. First, I don’t really like how a lot of things are just like a modified version of things
    we have in the present day, or they just have something added. I didn’t really understand what was up with all the references to soy. There
    were things like soy chicken, soy paper, etc. which was confusing. Throughout the reading of the book, I was wondering about a lot of
    things. That wasn’t something I didn’t like, but I was thinking; “when does this story take place?” The book describes Rusty as a century
    old antique robot, so we know this takes place at least 100 years into the future. I just think this part about the book was confusing.
    There were many good things about the book. I liked how Rusty was not knowledgeable with human ways, and that made him humorous.
    Rusty is a bit literal, like when he cleaned the main character’s rooms and thought their furniture was trash. It was not boring, or scary, or
    sad; it was like the books I love to read. The book was a little short for me, but I loved it all the same. I think Rusty the Robot’s Holiday
    Adventures was a great book, and I would recommend this book to any elementary school aged kid. Rusty’s reactions to any holiday are
    so funny.  The authors did a wonderful job of making Rusty a funny, amazing robot. They matched my idea for a good read and probably
    will for other people.

    It took me about one story to fully warm up to Rusty, the Robot, but once I did, I pretty much fell in love with him.
    The story is set in the future, but kind of an anti-Jetson future:  People still live on the Earth's surface, dress and speak about the same as we do, and robots are antique oddities, so sometimes that was a bit jarring for me as an adult reader with preformed notions about the future.  Rusty, however, is absolutely charming, from beginning to end.
