Praise For…

"Young children will be pleased with Little Robot’s ingenuity."--Booklist

"A book to cherish for years to come."--Kirkus, STARRED review

"Phelan’s gauzy, sunny watercolor-and-pencil drawings set a cheery, energetic mood, and ingenious Little Robot is instantly winning—surprisingly expressive, sweet but never cloying, and in service to a higher and very relatable purpose."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

A great bedtime read, and one to try along with Arnold Lobel’s “Frog and Toad” tales for a storytime about friendship."--School Library Journal
