PreSchool-K–A turquoise, beetle-shaped robot joins his brightly hued coworkers in seeking a missing friend and repairing the broken Big Cooker Robot. Though his small face lacks any features, R Robot's valor is evident as he enters the enormous Cooker. He uses the light from his spare head that he always takes to work to find and remove the clog–the missing robot. Busy, full-page spreads in energetically colored acrylics are backed by splotched spray-painted backgrounds. Kuszyk's industrial art includes comedy when the variously shaped machines team up to solve problems of height, heavy load, or repair. The mostly simple-sentence text is an ideal complement to the topic and illustrations. Given the recent popularity of robot stories, this will be a hit with children.–Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
