Cyber-Saucy! Robo-Sauce by Adam Rubin
[WARNING! THIS BOOK TURNS INTO A ROBOT!]
Naw! That couldn't happen. But if a cool robot costume lets a kid get into the persona of a robot, well, go for it!
Grown-ups have no idea how much fun it can be to play like you are a robot! So how can they even imagine how much fun it would be to BE a robot!
ROBO-POKE! ROBO-GRAB! ROBO-STOMP!
EVERYONE WOULD WANT TO BE A ROBOT!
What if there was robot machine that processed kids into robots? Or even better--
It's no taste treat, but if you pour on just enough, well--ZAP! you will become a GIANT ROBOT!
Now it's time for Rampaging Robots! What if even your parents can become robots? Your dog? Everyone?
The robots take over the story, and then in a gatefold that just keeps on keeping on, the robots take over the book itself, in Adam Rubin's Robo-Sauce (Dial Books, 2015), in which a many-faceted gatefold opens up and can be refolded into a new cover for a book which even can be "read" backwards. And why not? Daniel Palmieri's illustrations are up to the challenge and his (and his readers') imaginations are extended in novel ways to there and back again. "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," says Kirkus Review.
