~I received ROBO-SAUCE for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
Here is the funny and robot-friendly new picture book from the brilliant minds that brought you New York Times bestselling books Dragons Love Tacos and Secret Pizza Party to life. Tired of being a human? No problem with one taste of the top-secret ROBO-SAUCE as it transforms you into a robot! Now you don’t have to brush your teeth…because your a robot! Just be sure to take the Robo-Antitdoto to turn back into a regular human when you are all done. Wait a minute, what are you doing? Did you just turn your dog and your family into robots? Are you turning everything into a rob—Beep. Bop. Boop.
FACT: Robots are awesome. They have lasers for eyes, rockets for feet, and supercomputers for brains! Plus, robots never have to eat steamed beans or take baths, or go to bed. If only there were some sort of magical “Robo-Sauce” that turned squishy little humans into giant awesome robots… Well, now there is.
Giggle at the irreverent humor, gasp at the ingenious fold-out surprise ending, and gather the whole family to enjoy a unique story about the power of imagination. It’s picture book technology the likes of which humanity has never seen!
Adam Rubin has been very involved in improv theater, and has even appeared in several commercials, doing a flying somersault catch in a White Sox ad and falling off a roof for the Lotto. Formerly in advertising, he lives in New York City writing full time. Daniel Salmieri has illustrated many fantastic picture books. He grew up in New York, constantly drawing and painting images of ninja turtles, dinosaurs, and fighter jets (not in the same scene…), and graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
This got me to thinking what would my robot name be. Perhaps KatBot or even inRobot as a new name for the blog…ha! ROBO-SAUCE reminds one how fun it is to have an active imagination and it even includes instructions to transform one story into a second, more binary-friendly story that both robots and humans can enjoy. This unique book has substantial doses of humor and is a great book to add to the bookshelf.
