I just watched Robot and Frank and it got me wondering if there are any good books that focus on a relationship like this between a human and a robot. 2001: A Space Odyssey springs to mind. Any others?

For the junior set, there's "Wall.e":

Actually, just read anything by Asimov with the word "robot" in the title. Can't go wrong there.

That's a good way to put it.

Start with, "I, Robot" ! Just about every story is specifically about different aspects of the relationship between various humans and various robots. The relationship aspect seems to be where Asimov really focused most of his attention in his robot stories.

I recently reviewed a short novel prior to publication that might interest you. It's on the lighter side of SciFi and is about a King, his robot and their quest for power.
It's just been released a couple of days ago:

Tales from the Kingdom of a King Who Wanted More

There is also a Kindle version:
