Recommends it for: 7-9 years (boys)

A cute story aimed at middle grade boys. There’s a new girl in the class who’s trying very hard to fit in. She's trying so hard that she tops the class in everything! She writes a better story than Henry (the class writer), she’s friendlier than Jenny Friendly, she draws better than Jack (the class artist), she beats Gretel in an arm wrestle, and she has a photographic memory.

The other students start to get suspicious, not only is she clever at everything but she doesn’t get jokes and never smil

Comedy and Action combined.

This book was about a boy misunderstanding a normal girl for a robot and actually she was not a robot and also she had written a robot report that was fake and they kind of went on a mission to get another robot to fight her. They made a robot and then it broke down and one of them stayed to fix it while the others just went because it was assembly time and it said on the review this time they would destroy everybody in assembly and they made a card board robot that looked like a robot.

I read this one together with my son and he thought it was hilarious, especially toward the end. If your child loves robots, they will love this book too. It is a story of an odd school, with an odd new girl,and her struggle to fit it. And when Henry, our protagonist, reads something he shouldn't, one little misunderstanding just may bring on a disaster bigger than he ever dreamed!
Andy Griffiths is a master storyteller, and he really knows how to have fun in his stories, and what makes kids lau

This book is so good, it's about a new girl in school named Roberta. In the afternoon when she leave school, a boy named Henry so her diary, the very 1st page said "I am Roberta, my real name is Robota 1000, I am a super- intelligent and super strength robot from the future, I came here to take over the foolish human and their only peaceful planet, Earth..." Henry alert the others, and that is where I will end. So read to know what is going to happen next!
This book is about how some kids are going aganist some new kid. They think she is a robot so they make a real robot to destory here. So some kid dress up into a robot suit to fight the real robot.
Can't connect to this book.
I gave this book a 3 because this book is not real and have a little bit of action. i just read this book for fun and easy to read.

While not as laugh out loud funny as Andy Griffiths's Just, Bum, or Treehouse series, this was an amusing take on a comedy of errors, set in a school with a nice resolution. Would be good for classes beginning discussions of clues and inferences in texts (although there is no subtlety) Best for ages 7-10. I would not read out loud to a class.

Robot Riot is the best book yet. Lots of kids LOVE reading about robots and almost anyone, whether they be adult, kid, or not even human, will treasure this one. Henry accidentally discovers that the new girl, Roberta Flywheel, is a ROBOT! Henry just needs to convince his friends. But is it really going to be so easy? The short answer is no.

I read this with my 6 year old and he loved it! Every night, he would beg for me to read just one more page:) I thought it was cute. Perfect for 6-12 year olds. I often found myself wanting to read on after my little boy was asleep.
