Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Stiff-jointed doggerel provides a brief narrated tour of a robot factory. On five successive spreads, one large robot jumps from the page in pop-up relief accompanied by four illustrated but otherwise undefined vocabulary words. After the greeter robot, there is a repair robot, an engineer robot that makes toys and a nursery for baby robots; a feeble conclusion invites readers to join a robot party. Aside from appealing graphics and a tried-and-true subject, there's little to recommend this. The flimsy attempt to introduce vocabulary is thwarted by lack of both visual and textual context, and there's nothing even approaching a narrative arc. But perhaps the best reason not to buy this book is that it comes equipped with a sound chip that provides a tinny, quasi-robotic soundtrack of ratchets, clanks, boings and guaranteed-to-irritate robot-baby giggles. Pass. (Pop-up. 2-5)
