“A straightforward tale of conflict and reconciliation for newly emergent readers? Not exactly, which raises it above the rest.” Kirkus STARRED REVIEW April 15, 2013
“There’s a nice rhythm to the mostly rhyming text (in speech balloons), which, while not strictly decodable, is full of sight words and simple enough, at just zero to four words per page, for new readers to parse. What’s more, they’ll want to read the story because the events are so familiar and relatable,…but with a welcome, giggle-inducing dose of the bizarre.” The Horn Book September/October, 2013
“Beginning readers will appreciate the brevity of the text and the predictability of the rhyming phrases. An appealing choice for young readers and robot fans.” Booklist July 1, 2013
