Synopsis

Synopsis

One day, a boy and a robot meet in the woods. They play. They have fun.

But when Bot gets switched off, Boy thinks he's sick. The usual remedies—applesauce, reading a story—don't help, so Boy tucks the sick Bot in, then falls asleep.

Bot is worried when he powers on and finds his friend powered off. He takes Boy home with him and tries all his remedies: oil, reading an instruction manual. Nothing revives the malfunctioning Boy! Can the Inventor help fix him?

Using the perfect blend of sweetness and humor, this story of an adorable duo will win the hearts of the very youngest readers.

Starred Review, Booklist, April 1, 2012:
"“The final, nearly wordless pages, with snapshots of the friends at play, are priceless.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, February 15, 2012:
“Dyckman’s debut offers pitch-perfect pacing and gentle humor…. as Boy and Bot would say, it’s ‘affirmative’ that this book will be a hit.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, February 6, 2012:
“Dyckman’s pared-down prose gives the role-reversal story just enough drama, humor, and robot-inflected dialogue…to keep children entertained for many re-readings.”

Review, The New York Times Book Review (online edition), April 11, 2012:
“It’s a perfectly adorable, age-appropriate friendship. And it’s simply impossible to imagine a 4-year-old boy not wanting to be friends with this book.”
