Rabbit and Robot: The Sleepover


Rabbit and Robot: The Sleepover
By Cece Bell
Candlewick Press, 2012. 50 pages. Easy reader.

Rabbit has a list of fun things planned for his slumber party with his best friend, Robot. He wants to make pizza, watch TV, play "Go Fish," and then go to bed. Unfortunately, his plans soon go awry! For starters, Robot prefers screws to carrots on his pizza. Then, Rabbit loses the remote! After Robot helps him find it (in Rabbit's ear), they try to play "Go Fish" but Robot falls unconscious in the middle of the game (dead batteries). The final mishap happens when Robot forgets his pajamas at bedtime, so he has to borrow Rabbit's rabbit-shaped p.j.s! The two friends end up laughing about their silly sleepover, and agree that "Today was a good day." I love these two cartoony pals! The book is cheerful and silly, and the short chapters are great for newly independent readers.
