Picture Book – Robot Zot

Robot Zot is ready for battle on Earth. Despite being much smaller than he apparently thinks he is, Robot Zot is fearless in the fact of danger. He rescues what is obviously the queen of the Earth (a toy phone), outwits a fearsome Commander General (a puppy) and sails off into the horizon, completely oblivious as always.

The humor in this book comes from the difference between the text, depicting a brave Robot Zot and the illustrations, which feature a hapless little robot encountering everyday Earth artifacts, from a television to children’s toys.

The illustrations are well done, with details in the background – such as an unmentioned but recurring human character puzzled by Zot’s rampage of destruction – that lend themselves to rereading the story.
