Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randie | 5/23/2011

    " Excellent illustrations. Humorous plot. Robot themed text was fun to read but some of the vocabulary might be tough or confusing for young children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ubalstecha | 3/2/2011

    " Cute story of a sentient, alien robot that lands on Earth intent on domination, but stumbles across a surburban home instead. Hilarity and destruction ensue. A classic from author Scieszka and illustrator Shannon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Myles | 2/14/2011

    " It was amazing because he was so small that he thought that a melon was a planet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 2/5/2011

    " Great pictures, but the text was a little awkward in spots for reading aloud, and it kind of seemed like it was trying too hard to be clever and funny. My kids thought it was really funny (their favorite part was the last page), though it's not a read-this-every-night favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/4/2011

    " I love the pictures--you can really feel the Robot action. I would bet
    that my grandsons would really like this book. I liked the exciting, rhyming
    text, but I wasn't sure about the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Inspired Kathy | 1/10/2011

    " This was our bedtime read tonight. Loved the pictures - struggled with the text. The Queen of all Earth made me laugh as did the last page of the book, poor commander general.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 12/18/2010

    " I loved this story, with its almost bizarre ending. Very sweet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela | 12/3/2010

    " The robot in this book really comes alive. It is fun to look at all the illustrations and boys will love this book. The colors are vibrant: yellow, red, green, purple, pink, blue, white, black, orange. The robot really looks like he is in action. It's a fun book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 10/18/2010

    " I love reading in a robot voice! It's so much fun! There are a few good spots for predicting in this book and I love the inferences kids have to make. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allisonperkel | 10/10/2010

    " Awesome kids book with cool artwork. Who doesn't love saying "Robot Zot! Bam Bot!"

    too much fun and my wee one loves it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 10/3/2010

    " fantasy category because the robot comes from out of space and tries to destroy all the kitchen appliances that come to life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisa | 9/13/2010

    " My two year old LOVES this book. Robot Zot is quite the robot...he attacks things with force, but then saves the "queen" from the evil toddler dolls....all with magnificent poses. We have checked this out several times from the library, "robo bot" is what my son calls it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristi | 9/5/2010

    " Robot Zot offers young readers tongue twists to the max! The vivid illustrations and battles that Robot Zot has in this book are fun for boys and girls. He battles the blender, coffee maker and tooth decay. He even falls in love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzy | 8/23/2010

    " Kids really liked this one. Had to stop and talk about what was really happening in the story for them to fully appreciate it, but it was a fun adventure! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammra | 7/1/2010

    " Three stars because I liked the book. Five stars for my son's laughter as I read the book to him (robot voice required). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexa | 6/4/2010

    " The end is hilarious. The rest of the book is cute but not thrilling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 5/10/2010

    " Similar to Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/23/2010

    " Adorable. Sure to be a story time favorite. "
