Perfect for high-energy story times, this cumulative tale is a madcap mash-up featuring robots, shapes in motley amalgamation, and . . . pie! Squares, rectangles, ovals, triangles, and other colorful shapes are sorted and arranged into -- two robots! But why stop there? Shape by shape, costume by costume, Robot and Robot play a game of oneupmanship that zips, zooms, and whirrs from friendly to hilariously out of control in nanoseconds. Robot Zombie? How about Robot Zombie Frankenstein? Can you handle Robot Zombie Frankenstein Pirate? What could be next? Where will it all stop? When the race makes a surprise (and delicious) turn, Robot and Robot are happy to be plain old robots -- and buddies -- once again.

Annette Simon was once a pie-loving advertising creative director who wrote and art-directed national print and TV campaigns. Now, she's a pie-loving author-illustrator who creates picture books, and she blames this particular book on the trickiness of her little sister and the deliciousness of her grandma's pies! Annette Simon lives in Florida.
A highly entertaining method of introducing a concept... Simon tells a simple, humorous tale of two robots and their imaginative play and quick costume changes... This hilarious title works for one-on-one sharing as participants can discuss the many different shapes shown, and in a group setting where children will laugh at the rivalry of the two mechanical characters. Great fun! --School Library Journal Simon uses brightly colored shapes, substantial creativity, and a photograph of cherry pie to construct a story of robotic one-upmanship... The cumulative chaos of the robots' costumes stands in humorous contrast to Simon's narrative and visual discipline, as she pokes fun at the human desire to be #1 and acknowledges the "Where did that come from?" nature of in-the-moment creativity. --Publishers Weekly
