PreS-Gr 1—A boy tries desperately to get his three robots to sleep. He leads them into the bathroom for rotor brushing and shield cleaning and finally settles them and himself into bed. But just as the snappy rhyming text suggests the robots are fast asleep, a page turn repeatedly indicates otherwise. "BEEP! BEEP!" bleep the robots as they report "sensor aches," the need for a light and more oil and a coil, and problems with a loose belt or tight bolt. Finally, in utter frustration, the boy issues an ultimatum: "No more blipping!/Blinking-boinking!/Winking-whirring!/Squinking-oinking!" Of course, they ignore him with a last request: "a bedtime story." Then no more sounds ensue, for the robots have "finally put/their boy to sleep." The illustrations, created with pencil, watercolor, and digital paint, greatly extend the text. The chaotic bathroom spread shows a robot entangled in toilet tissue as another overflows the sink with bubbles and toothpaste and a third sprays water well beyond the bathtub. The boy first rests with a wary eye on the troublemakers, yawns in hopeful anticipation of quiet, and finally lies spread-eagled in exhaustion. Alert readers will notice that a mouse, which has its own bed in the room, joins in the antics from start to finish. VERDICT A delightful tale of bedtime role-reversal that sharp youngsters will appreciate.—Marianne Saccardi, Children's Literature Consultant, Greenwich, CT

"A tricksy and playful rhyming robot bedtime story that will power down the little ones."―Kirkus Reviews

However, this has turned into one of my favorite children's book and certainly my favorite one published in the past decade. It's clever. It's cute. It's so rich in detail that every time I read it I notice some new aspect of the illustrations that just completely delight me. And, most importantly (I guess), kids love it (my son and nephews).
The storyline is sweet and clever: the little boy is in the role of parent trying to get his robots to bed and asleep; followed by another twist--the robots are actually putting him to bed and to sleep. It's the traditional telling of the bedtime routine as bed time story, but with a great twist. I also love the things that the robot's say that imitate what children say at bed time but are robot specific,
The illustrations are loaded with such fun details: the expression on the little boy's face as his robots run amuck in the bathroom; the robots actually turning out the lights, closing the books, etc.; the mouse with the eye mask to block out the light one of the robot's needs on. Priceless.
Oh--and those multicolored fonts? They are color coordinated to the robots and the boy's pajamas. Amazing attention to detail with this book.
And yes, my son likes it too:)
