We bought this book to appease our 2-year-old son's appetite for all things robot. And it worked! He loves this book with it's fun robot pictures... illustrated in the robotic stylization of bygone days (that is, classic 50's robot representation and very unlike "Rolie, Polie, Olie" who, by the way, doesn't much look like a Robot to me). And we like the shiny bits very much.
The rhymes are fun and my son likes to fill in the last word of each couplet. Good book for young robot enthusiasts.
