How To Remove A Chocolate Ice Cream Stain From Your Shirt:

 

Washables: Treat the spot with a solution made from a tablespoon of an enzyme detergent, such as Wisk, and two cups of water. Let stand for 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.


Nonwashables: Apply rubbing alcohol and let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water. Use a combination of a mild detergent, such as Woolite, and water to clean the residue.

"A high-energy picture book goes a long way on a little plot, thanks to a clean graphic style, a staccato rhyming text, and a surefire kid-pleaser of a subject. Young robot fans will thrill to this simple tale, and the strong rhythm of the text makes it an ideal candidate for storytimes".
- School Library Journal
 
"Fascinating computer-enhanced artwork that features crisp geometric shapes and Technicolor hues -- thoughtfully designed, right down to the diamond-encrusted endpapers."
- Booklist
 
"A charming rhyme ... chock-full of funny visual details with a thumping rhythm that make this an excellent read-aloud."
- Kirkus Reviews
 
"Bob Staake's bold, graphic art style is perfectly suited to the futuristic subjects of his clever, humorous story."
- Amazon.com
 
"Bob Staake's modern, crisp illustrations ... practically jump off the page."
- Publisher's Weekly
 
"Staake's illustrations (are) a stylistic collision of Russian constructivism and pop art that explode with energy playing off of basic geometric shapes and angles and swimming in saturated colors."
- Publishers Weekly
