Overview
WINNER OF A 2013 GEISEL HONOR
Rabbit's carefully planned visit with Robot doesn't work out exactly as he imagined in this offbeat tale about two comically mismatched friends.
Rabbit is excited: his friend Robot is coming to spend the night Rabbit has left nothing to chance and has drawn up a list of all the things they will do. First off is making pizza, but Robot only likes nuts and bolts and screws on top (good thing he has magnetic hands). Next on the list is watching TV, but the remote is missing, and Rabbit is panicking Will Robot find a logical (and rather obvious) solution to the problem? Number three is . . . uh-oh Why is Robot lying down instead of playing Go Fish? And what is that message reading "BAT" printing out from a slot on his front? New readers who like silly stories will race through this funny adventure about a rabbit who likes to be in control and an obliging robot who calmly keeps their friendship humming.

Meet the newest odd couple in the early reader section: fussy, compulsive Rabbit and overly logical Robot. The book’s four chapters, written almost entirely in dialogue, correspond to the plan for the friends’ eagerly anticipated sleepover: make pizza, watch TV, play Go Fish, go to bed. But it’s a list Rabbit generated without consulting his friend, so negotiations—delicate and otherwise—are the order of the day. The uni-wheeled, iPhone–shaped Robot wants to play Old Maid in addition to Go Fish; Rabbit insists it’s “not on the list.” Robot doesn’t like the veggies that Rabbit offers as pizza toppings, and insists on taking apart Rabbit’s furniture to get his favorite topping, nuts and bolts. But while Rabbit’s hair-trigger temper and Robot’s Vulcan mien seem like a recipe for disaster, each strong personality is willing to bend just enough—and even indulge in some comic self-reflection. Bell’s (Itty Bitty) crisp, cheery cartooning adds visual punctuation and elaboration in all the right places, and she handles moments of both calamity and reconciliation with aplomb. Delightful. Ages 5–8. Agent: Caryn Wiseman, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. (Sept.)
