Summary
Boy + Bot meets School's First Day of School in this hilarious and reassuring take on first experiences and making new friends, from a Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner.

Ultrabot is a big robot with a big problem. Its professor is planning a playdate with Becky Tingle, the little girl from next door. But Ultrabot has never been on a playdate, and it doesn't know Becky. What if she's mean? What if she breaks all of Ultrabot's toys? What if she won't share?

Packed with loads of fun details and visual humor, this reassuring friendship story speaks to the shy giant robot in all of us.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Ultrabot, a gigantic, rust-colored robot with a barrel-shaped torso and a spindly antenna, lives with its human professor in a "top-secret laboratory on Primrose Lane." When the professor arranges a playdate for Ultrabot with someone called Becky, it panics: "What if Becky was mean?" Ultrabot envisions Becky as a giant, hairy monster with sharp claws and beady eyes, but Becky turns out to be a gentle human girl who wears lots of barrettes in her hair and is unfazed by her unusual playmate. Illustrations show a playful contrast between the laboratory's sterile environment, filled with tanks and gadgets, and the homier accoutrements of Ultrabot's bedroom (it lies worriedly tucked under a patchwork quilt). And Schneider inserts subtle visual humor into every scene of this winning friendship story--both Ultrabot and Becky prefer their sandwiches just so (bread crusts removed for one, enormous metal beams welded off for the other)--as human and robot find out just how much they have in common. Ages 4--7. (July)"
