James Patterson’s new series proves it’s hard to fit in … when your brother is a robot!

In this new series from James Patterson, an extraordinary robot signs up for an ordinary fifth grade class … and elementary school will never be the same!

It was never easy for Sammy Hayes-Rodriguez to fit in, so he’s dreading the day when his genius mom insists he bring her newest invention to school: a walking, talking robot he calls E—for “Error.” Sammy’s no stranger to robots—his house is full of a colorful cast of them. But this one not only thinks it’s Sammy’s brother, it’s actually even nerdier than Sammy. Will E be Sammy’s one-way ticket to Loserville? Or will he prove to the world that it’s cool to be square? It’s a roller-coaster ride for Sammy to discover the amazing secret E holds that could change family forever … if all goes well on the trial run!

Quotes & Awards

  • “I dislocated my jaw laughing.”

    Eoin Colfer, New York Times bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series

  • “Jack Patterson’s dynamic performance captures the emotions of fifth-grader Sammy Rodriguez-Hayes and his ‘brother’—the robot he calls ‘Error.’ Sammy’s youth and awkwardness are effectively conveyed by Patterson with an energetic voice and well-timed, perfectly delivered quips. Patterson’s portrayal of the robots is also superbly done, with a fractured, irregular pace to convey their fragmented speech. The addition of sound effects of echoing and electronic pings adds another dimension to their realistic metallic voices. Patterson’s lively presentation of all the characters is immediately engaging, and he deftly modulates his tone to highlight the moments of joy and seriousness in this endearing story. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “Underlying the novel’s laughs are themes of friendship, compassion, and family, particularly in regard to Sammy’s devotion to his younger sister…and his deepening relationship with his ‘bro-bot.’”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “there are plenty of amusing jokes. Young readers with an interest in science will certainly be engaged.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “This light and funny story incorporates plenty of humor…Sammy’s relationships with his parents, sister, and best friend are strong…A fast-moving plot, lots of jokes, and a host of weird robots will draw readers in.”

    School Library Journal
