PopPreS-Gr 1—Raybot is lonely in his junkyard home until he sees something that provides him with a plan to find a best friend. He heads out on a global adventure, looking for a puppy that can bark. Traveling from farm to forest to jungle and even beneath the sea, he meets all sorts of friendly animals with their own unique sounds. Some moo, and others growl or hiss, but Raybot won't give up until he finds one that can bark. This charming story about a hopeful robot is done in pen and ink and oil paint on board. It begins with lively orange striped endpapers that parallel Raybot's body. From there, readers step into bright, spacious landscapes that star an expressive character with a hinged jaw and wide-set eyes. It's an engaging and participatory story, with text suitable for beginning readers. VERDICT A silly and delightful read-aloud with the positive message that puppies and friends come in all shapes and sizes.—Gaye Hinchliff, King County Library System, WA

Raybot is lonely and on a quest to find a best friend. Thanks to a ripped ad he found, he knows that the best friend he's looking for, barks. What he doesn't know, is that he's looking for a puppy. Raybot sets off looking for a barking best friend. His travels take him all over the world, where he meets a variety of different animals. All of them make a noise, just not the one he's looking for. Just when he thinks he won't find that perfect friend, he does, and it's not who you think it is.
What a cute story! We loved seeing all the places Raybot travels to, and all the animals he meets. This book makes the perfect story time book, because the reader has a lot of animal noises to makes (haha). With it's cute message, and adorable illustrations, this is one picture book I'd recommend picking up!
Raybot sets out into the world looking for a puppy and on his way, he meets a lot of different animals. With each animal he encounters, he asks if they "bark". What's great about this question, is that the animals answer with their own sound. It's such a great way to introduce little ones to the different animal sounds.
For parents and children alike, this exquisite illustrated book will make you smile from beginning to end.
