A young boy ingests a batch of Robo-Sauce and succeeds in becoming an awesome robot; the only problem being that now he's alienated from the human life he once knew. The solution is obvious: Robo-size EVERYTHING! This book is as wonderfully ridiculous as it sounds.

Additional Notes

From The Publisher*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!
