Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This engaging robot tale mixes science and friendship in a well-told story that unfolds slowly, with lots of detail and attention to the inner thoughts and feelings of Penny Rose and Lark. Weird Little Robots celebrates quirks and friendship and how valuable it is to be authentic. The girls are free to be themselves when they’re together, shedding insecurities and not worrying about being cool or measuring up to someone else’s standards. More advanced readers will likely fly through the pages, while anyone still getting used to longer chapter books will take their time to enjoy the story.
