Doug is a robot. His parents want him to be smart, so each morning they plug him in and start the information download. After a morning spent learning facts about the city, Doug suspects he could learn even more about the city by going outside and exploring it. And so Doug . . . unplugs. What follows is an exciting day of adventure and discovery. Doug learns amazing things by doing and seeing and touching and listening—and above all, by interacting with a new friend.
Dan Yaccarino's funny story of robot rebellion is a great reminder that sometimes the best way to learn about the world is to go out and be in it.
DAN YACCARINO is an internationally acclaimed author-illustrator with more than 30 books to his credit. Dan is also the creator of the animated TV series Oswald and Willa's Wild Life, and he designed the characters for The Backyardigans.

Doug is Endearing.
Doug Unplugged is adorable. It is such a sweet, gentle, loving story that you can't help but say "awwww" when reaching the end of it. Yes, it does end with a hard-to-miss moral, facts vs. experience, but the conclusion is endearing rather than annoying. And it's about a robot. Little boys really like robots.
Dan Yaccarino's artwork is always exceptional: Engaging, colorful, timeless and adorable. Just like the story of Doug Unplugged.
