Summary
Fans of the best-selling Dragons Love Tacos will devour Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri's newest story, a hilarious picture book about robots that magically transforms into a super shiny metal ROBO-BOOK.

FACT: Robots are awesome. They have lasers for eyes, rockets for feet, and supercomputers for brains! Plus, robots never have to eat steamed beans or take baths, or go to bed. If only there were some sort of magical "Robo-Sauce" that turned squishy little humans into giant awesome robots... Well, now there is.

Giggle at the irreverent humor, gasp at the ingenious fold-out surprise ending, and gather the whole family to enjoy a unique story about the power of imagination. It's picture book technology the likes of which humanity has never seen!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Do you love robots? Do you wish you had a magic formula that could turn ordinary things and even people into robots? We could do it if only we could locate some plaxico powder, gluten-free kookamonga flakes, and a few other special ingredients. An unseen narrator (or maybe the dog) encourages a young boy dressed up as a robot to dream big. The boy mixes up some Robo-Sauce, then transforms himself, his family, his house, and his friends into robots. With brilliantly inspired design, the book then urges readers to activate the Robo-Story, and a gatefold illustration the size of four regular pages unfurls. Easy, step-by-step instructions lead readers to wrap that long page around the book, and voilà the whole thing has been transformed into a shiny Robo-Book. In beeps and boops, the last few pages tell the story of the victorious robot uprising! The illustrations are rendered primarily in scratchy, childlike scribbles in muted earth tones with explosive bursts of fluorescent orange Robo-Sauce. As a tribute to the unpredictable power of imagination, this book will inspire potential young engineers to think outside the (cardboard) box. Libraries may need to reinforce the foldout page, but the paper engineering will work even if a cover is attached, and the energetic story is certainly worth the extra effort.--Whitehurst, Lucinda Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Is there an award for best gatefold ever? Then tell Rubin and Salmieri to get out their tuxes, because this book has the one to beat. Their premise is simple: a boy loves dressing up in a homemade robot costume and terrorizing his family ("robo-poke! robo-grab! robo-stomp!"). When the smooth-talking unseen narrator offers the kid a chance to become an actual robot by drinking the "Robo-Sauce" of the title, the boy can't resist; he then uses the sauce to engineer a full-scale robot takeover, which includes the very book readers hold. A gatefold late in the story can be extended and wrapped all around the book's façade, transforming it into a metallic, orange-accented "Robo-Book." Grownups who hate fun may question the staying power-not to mention physical resilience-of the book's novelty element. But rest assured that it's a very funny story, too, as the narrator finds out that he's inadvertently brought about a robot apocalypse. The Robo-Times's critical assessment (as blurbed on the robo-story's new back cover) says it best: "Beep Boop!" Ages 4-8. Illustrator's agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House.
