Editorial Reviews

Review

A highly entertaining method of introducing a concept... Simon tells a simple, humorous tale of two robots and their imaginative play and quick costume changes... This hilarious title works for one-on-one sharing as participants can discuss the many different shapes shown, and in a group setting where children will laugh at the rivalry of the two mechanical characters. Great fun!
—School Library Journal

Simon uses brightly colored shapes, substantial creativity, and a photograph of cherry pie to construct a story of robotic one-upmanship... The cumulative chaos of the robots’ costumes stands in humorous contrast to Simon’s narrative and visual discipline, as she pokes fun at the human desire to be #1 and acknowledges the "Where did that come from?" nature of in-the-moment creativity.
—Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Annette Simon was once a pie-loving advertising creative director who wrote and art-directed national print and TV campaigns. Now, she’s a pie-loving author-illustrator who creates picture books, and she blames this particular book on the trickiness of her little sister and the deliciousness of her grandma’s pies! Annette Simon lives in Florida.

Smile right along with your child as you both enjoy this entertaining romp. Two geometrically inspired, brightly colored robots compete to see who can come up with the best costume, and eventually decide there's something even better than being the best. Pie. Simon has the amazing gift of delightfully surprising the reader with each page turn. From verbal creativity in her robot language, hilarious costume changes, and even the visual surprise of a photograph after all those glorious, disarmingly simple spreads, this is a book you won't mind reading again and again. There's great opportunity to come up with your own silly games as you and your audience, whether one child or a room full of kiddos, see how creative you can get. Books that inspires creativity like this one does are five-star gold mines. No, six star treasure troves. No, billion star galaxy wonders. And so it goes . . .

My children are big into monsters, vampires, and zombies so this book was perfect for them. It is quite humorous and fun to read with my kids.

What can I say, it's a cute book that munckins love! The images are bright and colorful, and they really catch my little guy's attention. He's even recognizing some of the words in the book as well.

By This Kid Reviews Books on January 31, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Purple Robot and Green Robot are best friends. But then suddenly Green Robot leaves. Where has he gone? What is he doing? What is that over there? It looks like a zombie... a ROBOT ZOMBIE! Green Robot has changed to a Robot Zombie costume! But wait, Purple Robot is jealous, so he changes in to ROBOT ZOMBIE FRANKENSTEIN costume! Then Green Robot Zombie leaves to try to be better than Purple Robot Zombie Frankenstein. Who will turn out to be the best between the two friends or will they ever come to a compromise?

This is a funny hilarious book about a battle of buddies! I like the uniqueness of the book and the repetition of words adding one more to the phrase before (ROBOT ZOMBIE FRANKENSTEIN PIRATE!). It makes it easy to read for young kids AND it's funny! The story has a nice ending because the friends finally compromise (let's just say there is pie involved). The illustrations really make the book awesome! They are simple shapes just put together in different ways.

My little ones dig robots. (3 and 1) Dig 'em... and this book is a fun, colorful, thought provoking (well, at least for them) romp! Granted, my 3 year old is a bit 'scared daddy' of the Frankenstein, but it's good way to enter into a 'real' vs. 'fake' conversation. The other great thing about the book are the colors/shapes in the beginning and the end of the book, which I use to teach them both in 'find the green square' type game. Enjoy!
