Cookiebot! A Harry and Horsie Adventure

Cookiebot! A Harry and Horsie Adventure
By Katie Van Camp; illustrated by Lincoln Agnew
Balzer + Bray, 2011. Unpaged. Picture book.

When Harry and Horsie decide they want a snack--specifically, cookies--they realize the cookie jar is unreachable! So what other option do they have than to build a Cookiebot? The Cookiebot is wonderful and retrieves cookies for them in an amazing manner, but when Cookiebot gets out of control, Harry and Horsie have to be resourceful, once again, in order to save the city from the rampaging robot!

A cute, silly story accompanied by incredible illustrations makes for a fun read to kids--especially those who love cookies and robots. Agnew's 3-toned, graphic, screen-print styled illustrations are what really makes this book shine. Check it out--but beware; your child may want to create a Cookiebot of their own!
