Cosmo and the Robot by Brian Pinkney is a picture book intended for readers in preschool through grade three. I gave it four stars. Cosmo, his robot friend Rex, and his big sister Jewel live happily on Mars until, one day, Rex is broken and turns evil, forcing Cosmo to give up his best friend. One day, Cosmo and Jewel come face to face with the evil Rex and Cosmo is forced to defend his sister against the evil robot. Cosmo saves his sister and is put to the test when he tries to put together and bring back his best friend, Rex. The illustrations in this text are colorful and whimsical, really transporting the reader to life on the red planet Mars. The detailed space suits and gadgets of Cosmo and his sister allow the reader to see the imaginative and futuristic world that the characters live in. Cosmo’s struggle at losing his best friend in the beginning of the story and having to defend his sister from Rex at the end of the story can teach young readers about overcoming the struggles and difficulties of both family and friendship. Cosmo’s determination and helpful attitude will help readers realize that they, even as children, can help fix situations and problems. Truly a warming tale of friendship and family.
