Mortimer Keene: Robot Riot

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

Review

Mortimer Keene is putting the finishing touches to his latest labour-saving robot in the school science lab. But a crucial component accidentally tumbles into the curious art teacher's pocket and Robo-13 goes berserk…Mayhem ensues with strawberry mousse and biscuits being hurled in all directions, before things really hot up - windows are smashed, classrooms trashed and teachers terrified! Can Mortimer put things right before the whole school is destroyed?

A funny, rhyming tale about a tiny scientist whose gigantic invention goes spectacularly wrong. Comical illustrations complement the witty text which is perfect for reading aloud or for developing readers to enjoy.
