Review: Can You Find My Robot's Arm?

Robots. Robo pets. Papercuts. Humour. Sorbet colour. All in one book? Heaven.

Robot has lost his arm. Robo pet wants to help, but the arm is nowhere to be found.

Will a fork make a good replacement for an arm? Hmmm. Maybe not.

What about a broom? A pencil? Perhaps a pair of scissors. An umbrella.

No. No. No. No.

As Robot and his pet traverse the pages searching for his arm, a replacement arm is consistently considered, taking the pair to all manner of venues, from the garden to the amusement park, the library to the sweets shop.

Perhaps, in the end, Robot might just have to make do with a replacement arm.

Kids will love the silliness of the replacement-arm offerings in this book. They will also adore (along with adults) the paper-cut-style imagery with its super cool detail.

A fabulous book for babies and toddlers, thanks to the sensational high-contrast pages.
