Review quote

A Kirkus Best Middle Grade Book of 2015A Texas Little Mavericks Title"A tale of friendship and the joys of tinkering." "The New York Times"The absolute best thing ever." "io9"Girls meets robot. Robot meets girl. Girl and robot become unlikely best friends ... and take on the world." "Entertainment Weekly" Ben is awesome, and so are his books! Kazu Kibuishi, author of the Amulet series Tonight s bedtime story. Rainbow Rowell, author of "Fangirl" Girl power at its best. A sure winner! "Kirkus Reviews, starred review" A pleasantly colorful adventure of discovery and friendship. Highly recommended. "School Library Journal," starred review Subtly inventive in both vision and execution, this one begs to be read again and again. "Booklist," starred review Well-plotted and -paced, this engaging story of loneliness, bravery, and friendship builds to a satisfying and sweet conclusion. "The Horn Book"Hatke s got a knack for early elementary graphic novels, and the unnamed protagonist here is just as endearing, memorable, and clever as Zita (from Zita the Spacegirl)." "The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
