"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."
"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
