Rusty is a friendly robot, but not a very happy one; he's feeling down about the way that he sounds. The other robots on Planet Robotone - Belle, Twango, Hoot and Boom-Bot - show Rusty that being a little bit different is the best way to be, and together make a raucous song and dance that celebrates their differences. This charming story about friendship, self-discovery and the strength of pooling everyone's talents together has a strong, empowering message of acceptance and embracing individuality. With wonderful, contemporary illustrations that will appeal to young children and parents alike, the story will provoke thought - and conversation - about being different, and how we should all embrace our characteristics and be comfortable and confident in ourselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You are amazing! Rusty is an insecure and troubled little Robot because he squeaks! He feels terrible about it. Every time he moves he emits an aura of unpleasant sound. The other robots on Planet Robotone come to his rescue. You see his friend Belle goes Ding, Hoot - Honks, Twango - Twangs and Boom-Bot loudly dissonates - BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! When he sizes up his friends and tunes in to their idiosyncracies he discovers that he is not weird or quirky at all. His robot friends rally around him and encourage his individual mannerisms and help celebrate his uniqueness. They all band together and make a joyful noise dancing away to their audio sensations. The illustrations are colourful, adorable, contemporary and very kid-friendly indeed. This entertaining story will spark conversations about being different and how we should embrace being who we are created to be confident that are wonderfully made inside and out. I highly recommend this book.
