Editorial Reviews

Young robot enthusiasts will surely be amused." -Kirkus "A humorous, fast-paced, action-packed science fiction novel." -School Library Journal "Clever, whimsical, and fast-paced, this adventure never loses its sense of fun." -Publishers Weekly "Amusing names? loads of action, and comical observations combine with Fujita's anime-inspired illustrations to offer a spirited beginning to a fun series." -Booklist Online "The snappy pace and straightforward storytelling give this accessibility to a younger crowd, while Fujita's occasional digital artwork complements the story's techy underpinnings and adds a bit of visual interest. Aspiring mechanics will be inspired by what Jackbot and his cohorts can do." -Bulletin "
