Overview

Designed to be enjoyed by children with an adult on hand, Welcome to Your Awesome Robot provides perfect material for a fun family activity day or a kids workshop. Viviane Schwarz has illustrated hilarious comics throughout the book to explain the blueprint instruction pages, so this is just as much a story as it is a workbook.

  • A fantastic educational tool for children that is colorful and beautifully designed and illustrated.
  • A fun activity book for parents, caregivers, and kids to enjoy together.
  • Develops practical and creative skills.
  • Produced to the very best production standards and manufactured in a 100 percent eco-friendly manner on the highest quality FSC assured paper, printed with vegetable based inks.

Viviane Schwarz was born in Germany and as a child she loved books so much she mostly ate them. Once she realized there were people out there making them, she decided to make her own. She studied illustration in Falmouth, England, and shortly after moved to London, where she lives now. She has been nominated for many awards and even won some too, most recently winning the 2011 Booktrust Best New Illustrator Award. Her book There are Cats in this Book was shortlisted for the 2010 Cilip Greenaway award for Best Illustrated Book and her latest book There are No Cats in this Book is on the 2012 shortlist for the same award.
