Katie brings us another adventure in the Harry and Horsie line of children's books. Katie's story, woven together with awesome illustrations, brings to life a grand adventure beyond the normal taking of a cookie from the jar! With Harry and Horsie building the Cookiebot to reach and retrieve them some cookies, the Cookiebot becomes a cookie-monster itself and it's up to Harry and Horsie to save all the cookies! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I know my family and friends will see what a ...more

Harry and Horsie ride again. This second story book in the Harry and Horsie adventure series is great. Harry decides to build a robot to get the cookies from the top of the fridge. But soon the robot is out of control. Harry is trapped inside and rampaging. The illustrations are similar to the first book but with a different pallet. Drawn like classic newspaper cartoons, there is a sense of nostalgia reading the book. Children love the story and ask for it to be read frequently.

26 months - what a fun story and great illustrations! We loved this little boy's imagination and the retro graphics and colors are fabulous! I was thrilled that it was in picture book format vs. comic book text bubbles. That would have lost it for me. I enjoyed being taken into Harry's imagination where everything is bigger than life; then when we return we see him wearing his cardboard robot costume. Love the details!

Katie Van Camp and Lincoln Agnew have a pop art style they incorporate in with fun story telling. Harry and his trusted sidekick Horsie are on a mission to get to the cookie jar, that for some strange reason their mother has placed WAY WAY up on top of the refrigerator. What can they do? Maybe built a cookiebot to scale this enormous obstacle and aid them in obtaining the cookie nourishment they so desire??

Cute story about a boy and his toy Horsie who want cookies for a snack. Mom put the cookie jar way up high on top of the refrigerator where they can't reach it. So, they made a robot to get them down: Cookiebot! But Cookiebot doesn't just retrieve cookies, he wants to devour them all as well!

Good for preschool storytimes.

This is just a fun story of a boy using his imagination. No morals or message to be a better person. This one of my boy's favorite stories. But then, it's about a robot and cookies, what more could a three year old want?

Overall, fun illustrations and promoting imagination make this a win for both my boy and I. It's fun to read and has a good flow.

My nephews definitely liked this, it's a total boy palooza with a robot and cool boy in the lead.

It's basically an adventure about getting cookies to alleviate hunger that leads he main character into building a robot to get the cookies for him. But the robot goes haywire and that's when the fun really begins.

So yeah, it was an interesting read and was definitely a lot of fun.

Great book for a 4-5 year-old. Fun, simple story, and the illustrations are a great combination of vintage-looking drawings and crisp, modern renderings. Look for funny details in the drawings, too!

This is a cute book. The illustrations are vintage. Very imaginative. I liked it but I didn't love it.

The most amazing retro comic book-esque graphics in any children's book! Unfortunately the story is mediocre at best.

My mom and dad call this book Crackerbot and whenever the book says cookie they say cracker and it's still a good book when they read it.

What kid hasn't wanted to build a robot for reaching the cookies stored up high? Cute, funny and a terrific adventure for Harry and Horsie.

Recommended to me by CT, one of my students. The art is the exact type of retro-y vintage goodness that I love. YES. The story is meh.

Retro illustrations. Plot reminds me of Saturday morning cartoons. Not very original. It has more adult- than kid-appeal. Meh.

I love these books. The illustrations are perfect for the story. I love the robot drawings. I wish I would have known about this book last year when we drew robots!

I really like the retro feel of the illustrations in this simple sic-fi picture book for very young readers. Robots are always a hit, even when the story is nothing special.

I liked the artwork, but the story was a little boring to me personally...though I suspect it is very engaging for a young reader...

Harry and Horsie create a CookieBot to help them reach the cookie jar, but things go wrong when the CookieBot develops a mind of it's own.
