Description



About the Book



Includes gatefold illustration that may be wrapped around the book, creating a "Robo Book" dust jacket.



Book Synopsis



Fans of the best-selling Dragons Love Tacos will devour Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri's newest story, a hilarious picture book about robots that magically transforms into a super shiny metal ROBO-BOOK.

FACT: Robots are awesome. They have lasers for eyes, rockets for feet, and supercomputers for brains! Plus, robots never have to eat steamed beans or take baths, or go to bed. If only there were some sort of magical "Robo-Sauce" that turned squishy little humans into giant awesome robots... Well, now there is.

Giggle at the irreverent humor, gasp at the ingenious fold-out surprise ending, and gather the whole family to enjoy a unique story about the power of imagination. It's picture book technology the likes of which humanity has never seen!
