About the book
When a new mechanical friend joins the family to help around the house, Robbie is impressed just how useful he is – cooking, sweeping, doing the dishes and tidying his room. But instead of housework, Robbie has his own plans for the robot which could get him into a whole lot of trouble! Can anyone make the robot stop?! A tale of nuts, bolts and mechanical mayhem!
“My Dad is an inventor, and he’s building a machine,
It’s a kind of housework robot, to keep my bedroom clean.”
