From Publishers Weekly

08 November 2010 – "A robot is made of so many parts," begins this modest board book with movable components. Each spread focuses on a specific feature of a humble red robot that looks very DIY. The robot has "one mouth" and "a pair of eyes," all fashioned from cardboard gears that rotate, and two forklike arms, one of which swings in a circle. But "a robot is more than just a pile of parts," Brown writes, and a final spread reveals a gently tarnished blue heart, with rotating cogs like the inside of a mechanical clock. It's an elegantly simple design with care paid to every detail. Ages 3–up.

Customer Reviews

Nice idea but...

Parts are clunky to move and more often than not results in you accidentally turning the page which results in a rather frustrating experience.
