One of our Books of the Year 2015 - December 2015 Book of the Month Another helping of page-turning fun from James Patterson, ably assisted by Chris Grabenstein. Sammy Hayes-Rodriguez shares his home with robots – his mum is a robot scientist - and one of them, E, even goes to school with him, to act as eyes and ears for little sister Maddie, who has severe immune-deficiency. Having a ‘bro-bot’ gives Sammy some much-needed cool at school, but the arrival of another robot in the classroom puts a spanner in the works. With E suddenly behaving like a delinquent, Sammy must find out what’s going wrong, and put it right. For all the craziness of the situation, the story is firmly grounded in kids’ own experiences of school and home-life. Short chapters, the speedy pace and copious cartoon illustrations mean that readers will zip through this. ~ Andrea Reece
Other authors creating irresistible and addictive page-turners for readers – however reluctant – include Steve Cole, Jim Smith and Liz Pichon.
In book two of the House of Robots series, it's 'bot brains versus 'bot brawn in an all-out war!

But disaster strikes when E malfunctions just in time to be upstaged by the super-cool new robot on the block - and loses his ability to help Maddie. Now it's up to Sammy to figure out what's wrong with E and save his family!
