This is fun to read aloud, especially if you're willing to do a robot voice. Zoe's friend Robot just can't seem to get the hang of her pretend mountain-climbing expedition! What can she do? Just keep trying, Zoe, it's all going to work out. After digging through the Austin Public Library catalog for awesome picture books about robots and coming up with very little that interested me, and NO female characters in sight, I really appreciated this one. My son was six when we read this, but we could [...]

This graphic novel for young readers is very fun, combining simple text, colorful cartoon illustrations and a fleshed out story that kids can relate to. Zoe is a young girl who wants to play with her friend Robot. Zoe suggests they go mountain climbing, up a huge pile of pillows. Robot insists time and time again that he can't see any mountain. Reminded me in some ways of Green Eggs and Ham, with a young child trying to coax a grown up to play and try new things. Delightful.

Another book in the growing field of graphic novels for beginning readers, this one is cute and clever. A robot can only see what is real, so how can it pretend? Zoe cleverly helps her robot friend learn about make believe. By the end, is he really pretending, or is he only pretending to pretend? Hmmm

Zoe struggles mightily to get her friend Robot to play with her. She quickly learns that his mechanical mind is too literal for make-believe, or is it?Another great comic book for beginning readers. The illustrations are fabulous and the story does a fantastic job of showing what one child can do with just their imagination.

I won this book from one of the first reads giveaways. This was a very cute book to read to my toddler. She enjoyed the pictures, and that the little girl was able to get the robot to pretend in the end. The author also sent some coloring pages and little postcards along with the book too. My daughter likes the book, and has asked me to read it a few times. It's a win!

My daughter and I found this on A Mighty girl's list of graphic novels. We decided to order it and make it a part of our bookshelf. We are glad we did. This is a terrific book about pretending and friendship. My daughter had me read it three times in one night and we are ready to read it again. We love this book.

Grades K-1. Robot can't pretend. He takes everything too literally. When Zoe wants to climb a "mountain", all robot can see is a pile of pillows. So Zoe decides to try and teach robot how to use imagination. Very simple graphic novel that is fun to read.

I love this early reader graphic novel series. Zoe wants to pretend but Robot doesn't know how to pretendhe is a robot. After many attempts at helping Robot pretend, Zoe is just about to give up but then something surprising happens.

I really love the Balloon Toons series; graphic novels for beginning readers. This one, as all of this series that I have read, have humor, are child friendly, and simple yet interesting readers. Zoe teaches Robot how to pretend--not something Robots can do!

This was a cute book about imagining things. For the robot it is difficult. As we become adults it is harder to imagine. This book shows us how important it is to imagine.

I would have probably only given 3 or 4 stars, but since Chris made me read it 4 times in a row- the 5 star rating is earned. (=Using a robot voice is strongly encouraged.

Super cute, and will be a good addition to the collection, but I don't feel like I can use for a PreK/K robot lesson after I just got through explaining how robots are different from humans.
