Overview
Meet best pals Monkey & Robot. This snappy collection of stories includes their first four adventures

Monkey and Robot are friends--the best kind. They simply belong together, and it never matters that silly Monkey is furry, or that kind Robot can rust. What matters is their sharing: movies and popcorn, games of hide-and-seek, a fish tank for...a hippopotamus?

Joining the ranks of such noteworthy pairs as Bert and Ernie, Frog and Toad, and Henry and Mudge, Monkey and Robot celebrate their friendship in this chapter book of four charming tales that are ideal for young readers.

For this beginning reader, Catalanotto (Question Boy Meets Little Miss Know-It-All) writes a quartet of stories about best buddies Monkey and Robot and illustrates them in pencil, using strong lines for his protagonists and soft shading for the backgrounds. It looks, at first, as though Monkey is the fragile one and Robot the guide and counsel. “I know the monster in the movie isn’t real,” says Monkey, in a story about handling fear. “But do you know what is really real?... That I really get really scared at monster movies.” Later, though, it’s Robot who has never played hide-and-seek, and Monkey who must explain the rules. The episodes don’t always stay focused. In a sequence about a cocoon hatching, after Monkey puts a sandwich in a tank with the cocoon, the sandwich pieces disappear in a way that distracts from the story arc. Elsewhere, a board game sequence about winning and losing bogs down in slapstick humor. Yet the passages about the friends’ strong and supportive relationship make the stories worthwhile, and good-humored silliness prevails. Ages 6–9. (Jan.)
