Rock'm Sock'm: Robot Zot by Jon Scieszka
NO ONE STOP ROBOT ZOT. ROBOT ZOT CRUSH LOT. ROBOT ZOT! HOT BOT!
ROBOT ZOT! WHAM BOT!
ROBOT ZOT! BAM BOT!
ZOT HOWLS HIS BRAVE BATTLE CALL!
ROBOT ZOT NEVER FALL!
ROBOT ZOT CONQUER ALL!
From the moment ROBOT ZOT explodes off the conveyor belt it's clear he is the quintessential action figure. Born to rock'm, sock'm, take no prisoners, he's a robot on a mission to crush, kill, and destroy the enemy.
No matter that he's about the size of a cherry pitter and his adversaries are huge and metallic, the obviously dastardly kitchen killers--a giant toaster, an egg-beater-wielding blender, and the most evil foe of all, the kitchen TV.
With his buddy BOT, ROBOT ZOT polishes them all off with plent of cyborg courage.
But there is one thing which can overcome the mightiest warrior robot--the force of LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! Stricken with the beauty of zee femme fatale, a toddler toy phone with all the bells and whistles to make even this robot's heart stop, he suddenly knows that he has met the QUEEN OF ALL EARTH. "Briring! Brring!" comes her siren call, and ZOT knows that his fate is to win her heart in battle and carry her away with him forever.
Joining forces with the noted David Shannon, of No David fame, with whom, among others, he has worked on his Trucktown series, gives Jon Scieszka a leg up in creating the wham-bam world of little guy play in his new Robot Zot! Little boys who like their heroes on the crash-smash side will love this new "toy story" that understands the rules of guy games from the git-go! Shannon's action-packed depiction of ZOT, with five-year-old teeth and bright, primary-colored paint, slightly nicked in battle, fits perfectly with Scieszka's vigorous but childlike dialog. This dynamic duo carries the story off with all the panache of their previous best-selling works--and with maybe just a little bit more synergistic POW! that will leave their readers calling for a lot more of ZOT!
WHAM BOT! ALWAYS ROBOT ZOT!
NO ONE STOP ROBOT ZOT. ROBOT ZOT CRUSH LOT.
ROBOT ZOT! HOT BOT!
