Additional Notes

From The Publisher*In this hilarious gem from triple Caldecott winner David Wiesner, it's big sister to the rescue when a new baby is delivered to a family of robots and the adults are flummoxed by technical difficulties.

A new baby's arrival is a big moment in any family, even a family of robots. Award winner David Wiesner captures the excitement and fanfare when baby Flange appears-as a crate full of components. The adults bungle the process of assembling Flange, with catastrophic results. Big sister Cathy, with her handy toolbox and advanced knowledge of robotics and IT, hasn't been allowed to help, but in the ensuing chaos she calmly clears up the technical difficulties and bonds with hernew baby brother. A shout-out for girl scientists and makers, Robobaby is an eye-opening and engaging blend of the familiar and the fantastic.

Review Quote*★ "A retro-futuristic romp, literally and figuratively screwy."-Kirkus, STARRED review 

"Wiesner's friendly robots, despite their clunky metal framework, infuse their twilit extraterrestrial world with warmth and mutual support, making this a convivial, if offbeat, addition to the new-baby-on-the-way collection." –The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
