Another great book from Matt Myers, illustrator of the mighty Tyrannosaurus Dad. You can count on Myers fort witty subtext, subtle visual humor and outright gags. Nice interplay between author and artist, great for kids who are into robots. Terrific stuff.

...since R2D2 is shoved aside by glitzier and more purposeful robots until... Well, you know right from the beginning that this one is going to have a happy ending, but there are lots of visual rewards along the way. Every wall and shelf has something clever, original, and humorous to keep both listeners and readers coming back for a repeat examination. Everything from the endpapers to the author and illustrator bios sticks to the theme. Your child will be ready for a game of "What if there were a robot for [name a zany purpose]?" and a drawing session.

The story and the illustrations hit a home run. I bought five copies to give as gifts and am buying three more because of the popularity of the book. I can't wait to see more work from either of these two.

My 15-month-old son will barely sit still for "Pat the Bunny," but anytime I hold up this storybook, he opens the front cover and sits, rapt, through the entire tale. For him, I think the appeal is the illustrations - painterly, rich, incredibly emotive. (I learned all those words in Art History class. Also "universality.") I've been working on helping my son recognize emotions, and in this book I can show him so much more than the standard, cartoonish "happy" or "sad" faces you usually see in children's books. Hopeful, confused, shocked, excited, touched... each of these expressions appears and is distinctly itself, not just happy, not just sad. "Clink" is going to be making the rounds among my family and friends this Christmas, because of its aesthetic beauty, its touching and simple story, and yes, its universality.

I read this book to my kindergarteners classes and they did an art project after. They really enjoyed the story and were able to come up with lots of creative ideas for their own drawings of robots.

The book looks at robots and gives the concept of actions that are programmed into them. The robots can only do what they are designed to do. Clink becomes a friend to the boy and finds out that he is not outdated.

We bought this book in a local book store a couple years ago, when my son was 4. We still go back and reread it more than any other book. It's beautifully illustrated and written. Above all, it's such a kind story. We both love it!
