Synopses & Reviews
The Problem: Harry and Horsie want cookies, but the jar is way out of reach.
The Solution: Build CookieBot—the most amazing cookie-grabbing robot ever!
What could go wrong?
"In this sequel to Harry and Horsie, the duo faces a dilemma: 'Mom had placed the cookie jar way too high.' Recognizing the gravity of the situation, Harry and Horsie construct a towering CookieBot, whose sole purpose is to detect and acquire baked goods. When CookieBot goes crazy and storms Fifth Avenue looking for sweets, it's up to Horsie to save the day. Rendered in slightly faded reds, blues, creams, and yellows, Agnew's dynamic action panels mimic vintage sci-fi comics. Fans of this team's first adventure will enjoy their energetic return. Ages 3 6. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
