Who doesn't want to be a robot?!? When our hero is given a recipe for a potion to turn him into a robot, he happily does so...too bad being a robot is not all it's cracked up to be. How can he ever become a real boy again?

I thoroughly enjoyed the level of silliness put forth in this book! As the story progresses, the boy turns into a robot, proceeds to wreck everything in his path and then transforms his family into robots as well. It all culminates with the book becoming a Robot book via page foldout. My official robot review is four beep boops out of five!

Robo-Sauce is a funny and terrifically designed book that encourages imagination and humor every step of the way.

The narrator lets loose a robo-MONSTER when he unleashes a boys inner robot. The entire book gets transformed near the end. Completely silly and perfect for older elementary kids in need of a laugh.
