Robo-Sauce by Adam Rubin, illustrated by Daniel Salmieri

I'm not sure how we'll process the fold-out portion of this book, but I intend to shower our processor with chocolate and leave it up to her, because this book is certainly worth it.

A little boy is having a great time playing robot, but his family isn't quite so enthusiastic. Don't they understand how fun it is to play robot? If only he could turn into a real robot....and he does! But things don't work out quite as he expects.

Now, at this point you know what to expect, right? The boy realizes it's better to be a human and have his family and friends and "changes back" since he was just pretending in the first place.

Heh heh heh heh.


Rubin and Salmieri, creators of subversive fun like Secret Pizza Party, Dragons Love Tacos, and Those Darn Squirrels (a staple of my fall storytime repertoire) have returned with a book that's funnier, weirder, and more wacky than ever. Be prepared for blank stares erupting into riotous laughter.

Verdict: The revolution has arrived. Buy this book and be prepared.
