Great illustrations. My son LOVES robots! Love your sprinkle heart at the end there.

My picture was actually of a sprinkle heart and a ROBOT!!! Will see if I can fix it... Hope you & your son find some good robot books to explore this week. I am very, very excited about the book I am reviewing on Friday....

Though a huge failure in trade, I've always been partial to the Ricky Ricotta series and think it's much better than Captain Underpants.

Oh my gosh!!! How could I have forgotten Ricky Ricotta?? i agreed - I like it better than Pilkey's "Underpants" books, which were the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" of about 5 -7 years ago... And, Ricky is not a total failure. It is still on the shelves at the B&N where I work. Maybe I will sneak in a review - it's such a great bridge book between beginning reader primers and Magic Treehouse/Junie B Jones 2nd grade series.

Not a failure so much as it didn't live up expectations. I agree though, it's a great 1st grade book for kids reading past beginning reader stage.

Another robot favorite for me...Rolie Polie Olie

Man, I forgot Rolie Polie Olie, too! Although, I have to admit to feeling a bit of smug snobbery towards William Joyce when he jumped on the Disney wagon. Can't really blame him, but I loved his illustrative style although the with the picture books he authored, the text always seemed to be not quite up to par with the art work. Although, "George Shrinks" is pretty darn good! I think I'll order some in for story time!
