Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Collect samples from the crater of a red-hot volcano using a robotic investigator. Guide a landing rover across the surface of Mars, and search for lifeforms. Ride with medical nanobots through the human body, and observe a sunken shipwreck through the cameras of an ROV (remotely operated vehicle). Use the whizz-kid guide to find out whats what in every scene.

Review:

"The emphasis in this pop-up is not on the androids of science fiction or the robots found in the toy aisle, but rather on the scientific applications of robots. The book contains nine press-out play pieces that can be constructed into four robots--a moon rover, an underwater rover, a volcanobot, and a tomb rover. After building the robots (some children may need help piecing together the delicate parts), readers can incorporate them into four stage-like pop-up scenes including a sunken pirate ship and a mummy's tomb. Prompts ('Which robot can get inside the crater?') encourage readers to consult the 'Operator's Manual,' at the left of each scene, which describes each robot's function and capabilities. Ages 3 — 6. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

With four exciting pop-up scenes and nine die-cut robotic accessories, this interactive book takes readers along for some seriously imaginative play as they journey deep into an Egyptian tomb or investigate a shipwreck through the cameras of a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Full color. Consumable.
