Robot Zombie Frankenstein! by Annette Simon - OPTIONAL

Simon, Annette  Robot Zombie Frankenstein!  Candlewick Press, 2012.  $16.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.  

This is a colorful children’s book with bright illustrations of robots.  The story is about two robots who like to dress up in disguises.  Some of their disguises include: superheroes, monsters, pirates and outer space invaders.  After the two robot friends are done wearing disguises they share a pie.  

The robots are made of simple shapes that most kids could name and recognize. The illustrations are cute and bright, but the storyline isn’t clear and it is very confusing to have two robots dress up, because in a way robots are a disguise too.  There isn’t enough text and the cute robots don’t outweigh the confusing story.  

EL (K-3)-OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
