Can You Find My Robot’s Arm?

We rated this book:


Robot has lost his arm! With the help of a small robot pal, and you the reader, Robot searches the city for his arm while trying out possible replacements. Will a fork or a broom do? And what happened to Robot’s arm anyway?

Can You Find My Robot’s Arm? is a gentle children’s book that turns a simple search for something lost into quite an adventure. The wind-up aesthetic of all the characters in the book adds a really fun old-timey feel to the technology, maintaining a level of familiarity for readers of any age.

The cutout paper art style is visually striking, offering a nice sense of solemnity and depth to the proceedings. But between the noir-style lighting and the reliance on black paper for much of the imagery, I expected there to be more of a mystery feel to the story, as if the reader would help the robot find clues and recover the arm.

And although we do find out what happened to the arm in the end, I think readers would have enjoyed finding it themselves more. That being said, this beautiful book will stand out both on the shelf and in the eyes of any young reader.
