@smolrobots is one of the best things on Twitter. Their book distills that loveliness and tells us more about 100 of these marvellous creations.
Warning 1: Contains me as a Pledgebot.
Warning 2: Contains the best description of a lychee ever.

I helped to crowdfund this so was very excited to see my copies arrive yesterday! Small Robots is a Twitter account which regularly posts drawings of robots designed for very specific tasks. For instance, Booksbot swoops in and hides your new books so you don't have to feel guilty about adding to the pile of books you already have waiting on your TBR! Teabot brings you tea (and only tea). Guestshowerbot helps you figure out the arcane controls on your friend's shower.

This book contains 100 robot

I've followed the @smolrobots account on twitter for a few years now and it never fails to bring joy to my newsfeed. When this book was announced I had no hesitation in contributing and I was so pleased when it arrived.

Sometimes a book arrives and the sheer joy of knowing what’s in it is enough to make me do a lap of the warehouse just so I can exclaim my delight at my poor flatmate. Occasionally I accidentally smack him in the face with an overeager book thrust.

This was one of these books.

Small Robots have been a long-standing bringer of joy to my twitter account, so pledging to bring this small, pink, hardcover piece of joy to life was a no-brainer. I’m delighted by the mixture of robots I already knew, in

The three laws of small robotics
1. Be kind
2. Be helpful
3. Do your best

An utterly wonderful book. Cute, funny and poignant all at the same time. Made me laugh out loud (Dairybot pointing at cows) and shed a few tears (Hopebot reaching out its little hand). The world needs more Small Robots.

This is one of those books that I think will be read over and over. I've been following @smolrobots on Twitter for a long time, and this book was definitely worth the purchase. The extra information about some of my favourite bots was exactly what I wanted, and my daughter was impatient for me to read it so she could talk about her favourites with me. So good. ...more
