Purple Robot and Green Robot are best friends. But then suddenly Green Robot leaves. Where has he gone? What is he doing? What is that over there? It looks like a zombie… a ROBOT ZOMBIE! Green Robot has changed to a Robot Zombie costume! But wait, Purple Robot is jealous, so he changes in to ROBOT ZOMBIE FRANKENSTEIN costume! Then Green Robot Zombie leaves to try to be better than Purple Robot Zombie Frankenstein. Who will turn out to be the best between the two friends or will they ever come to a compromise?
This is a
funny hilarious book about a battle of buddies! I like the uniqueness of the book and the repetition of words adding one more to the phrase before (ROBOT ZOMBIE FRANKENSTEIN PIRATE!). It makes it easy to read for young kids AND it’s funny! The story has a nice ending because the friends finally compromise (let’s just say there is pie involved). The illustrations really make the book awesome! They are simple shapes just put together in different ways.
I also like that on the end pages, there are pieces to make the Robots!
I think that would be a fun activity to copy the end pages then you can cut out the shapes and make your own robots (hmm that gives me an idea)! I recommend this book to kids 4+!
