Review: No-Bot, the Robot with No Bottom!

You don’t even have to open the pages of this book to know that it will be popular with young children. It features a loveable looking robot and the word ‘bottom’. What more could a young child ask for? How about the sentence ‘Excuse me, Bear, have you been drumming on my bottom?’ See. I told you this book was a winner.

This enjoyable story about Bernard the robot will have kids giggling as they follow poor Bernard’s search for his missing bottom.  Everyone Bernard talks to thinks they have seen his bottom, but each time he gets to a new location someone else has come along and taken his bottom away. Poor Bernard isn’t a robot anymore, he’s a no-bot.

Fun and silly, No-Bot, the Robot with No Bottom is a simple story guaranteed to have kids and parents smiling. Illustrations are bright and appealing and children will love all the different uses the animals have for Bernard’s missing bottom. 

So does Bernard ever find his missing bottom? I guess you’ll just have to read the story to find out!
