Customer Reviews of Cookiebot!: A Harry and Horsie Adventure

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harrie and Horsie Rock! Harry and Horsie ride again. This second story book in the Harry and Horsie adventure series is great. Harry decides to build a robot to get the cookies from the top of the fridge. But soon the robot is out of control. Harry is trapped inside and rampaging. The illustrations are similar to the first book but with a different pallet. Drawn like classic newspaper cartoons, there is a sense of nostalgia reading the book. Children love the story and ask for it to be read frequently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Twist on Classic Story, Absolutely Great Illustrations In this second adventure from the award winning team that brought you Harry And Horsie comes COOKIEBOT!. Katie Van Camp and Lincoln Agnew`s literary and illustrative cooperation brings this retro style adventure to life, literally. This adventure begins with Harry the main character, and his best friend, and stuffed horse called Horsie. Both bored and hungry for a cookie Harry and Horsie travel to the kitchen on the hunt for a cookie. But there is just one problem, Harry is not tall enough to reach the cookie jar. He calls for help from Horsie and they both get the idea to build a robot that will reach and give them cookies. What could go wrong? A malfunction occurs, and Harry realizes there is no off button to shut his robot off, so Cookiebot goes out of control and escapes to the city. And climbs to the top of the cookie tower and eats every single cookie in the world. The only person who could save the world from a cookie famine is Horsie, he comes flying in his cape and knocks Cookiebot off the building, which causes him to shut off. The book is a twist on the classic story King Kong. The cookie tower which can be compared to the Empire State Building, even having a page with Cookiebot on top of the building with Harry in the same pose as King Kong. A beautifully written and illustrated picture book brought to you by Katie Van Camp which was once David Letterman`s nanny to his son, Harry and his best friend Horsie. Which comes her inspiration for her first picture book, Harry And Horsie. With the collaboration of her friend Lincoln Agnew, bringing to the table a retro style to the picture books. Lincoln made his debut as a picture book illustrator with Harry and Horsie, for which he won the 2009 Society of Illustrators "The Original Art" Founder's Award as well as the Marion Vannett Ridgway Award. Cookiebot! A Harry And Horsie Adventure is a fun and funny picture book that will entertain the little ones and the older ones.
