"Robot Dreams" is a graphic novel that you can read from start to finish while you eat your lunch, as long as you also have dessert and eat slowly.

I love the beginning where dog is lonely, so he constructs a robot from a mail order kit. This robot becomes dog’s best friend. It is a great touch to see the robot carrying the movie "Castle in the Sky" which is a nice tribute to anime and of course robot enjoys watching the robots in the movie.

Dog and his friend robot go to the beach, but robot plays in the water and once he dries off finds that he cannot move, so dog leaves him and goes home. Dog does try to rescue him, but is unsuccessful.

The book is poignant in its realistic handling of how friendships come and go, but how the memory of them does remain with us.

"Robot Dreams" will leave you pondering over its message long after you put it down and move on with your life. The art work is a delight to the eyes. A wonderful graphic novel, great for all ages, even adults will appreciate its message.
