bookshelves: 307, good-for-classroom

The idea of building robots is believable and the concept of a poorly programmed robot wreaking havoc is a staple of this genre, fits nicely for the age group. The illustrations do a good job of providing a clear setting, you really understand how messy Wendel is, how vast the scrap pile, and how dark and alone Clunk is when he is thrown out. The theme is appreciation. Wendel learns that appreciation is good and he learns to appreciate his imperfections and gets his shop back and running and his world brightens as he plays outside with his creations.
