A 6 year old regular patron of mine once stated “you can’t have too many robot books”. True enough. However, I think we can safely let this one slide into the great beyond. Aside from the dirty cover and tape repairs, this book is just dated. I did like the content though. Any kid back in the 80s would have devoured this book. Today, though, it might just seem hokey and old fashioned. I figure that the kids would get the references to Star Wars, but how many kids would get the Bionic Man, Dr Who and Issac Asimov?
