Melvin is described by his friends as a sad...(ish) robot ... until the day he meets Marilyn. Will Melvin have the courage to go after what he want? The book is beautifully illustrated with photographs of clay robots (sculpted by the author himself) in natural scenery. The screen on Melvin's chest, which depicts his moods, is a great touch. I also love B.T., the toaster dog, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the author's dog. As well as looking wonderful, the book conveys a lovely message, encouraging those who are a bit different to step out of their comfort zone and have the courage to try new things. This story will appeal to readers of all ages, with the young ones enjoying the fanciful robots and the older ones exploring the deeper meaning behind the story. I received this book in return for an honest review. Full blog post (27 September):
