Robot Zot is recommended for children ages preschool-third grade. This book is about a robot who wants to conquer the world. Robot Zot crashes into an alien environment of a suburban kitchen, battles with fearsome kitchen appliances and a TV, which he calls a challenging transmitter. He also rescues a toy cell phone, which is better known as the Queen of all Earth before zooming off to distant galaxies to save anything else he can.

This book has everything that interests young children including robots, heroes, silliness, action, destruction, and romance. The language used within the book is a bit confusing and a little hard to follow as it moves back and forth between prose and rhyme. At the same time, the short sentences make it reading material for early readers. The interesting wording of the book and the action-filled illustrations make the book appealing, interesting, and enjoyable for young readers. The action-filled illustrations can be a little confusing because there is so much going on, but at the same time has a lot of humor not represented in the text. The text and illustrations work together and complement one another well. The robot toy has very humanistic qualities and is reminiscent of the movie Toy Story. This is a great book to share with students who enjoy robots and futuristic objects.
