No-Bot by Sue Hendra
Bernard the Robot loses his bottom on the park swing, and sets off to find it. Every time he gets close, it disappears again! Bird was using it as a nest, but it was too heavy; Bear used it in his drum kit, but it was too tinny; the Squirrels built sandcastles with it...and now it looks as if they're sailing away in it. Will Bernard EVER get his bottom back?
A child's story book containing robots and bottoms - what more could a child want?
The book is a great story for young children; with it's short but funny story and brightly coloured simple illustrations it is a good story to share at story time with children. The pictures give the ideal opportunities to aid further discussion with children.
Thank you to the publishers, Simon and Schuster for sending me the book to review.
