What if your best friend was a robot? Alfie likes hanging out at the airport - it look's like everyone has someone waiting for them and they all seem so happy when they arrive back from their holidays. He wishes he had someone as excited to see him... So when he finds Eric, a one-legged robot in need of a friend, at the airport Lost Property counter, he decides to take him home with him. Runaway Robot is a hilarious and heartwarming tale of friendship from Carnegie medal-winning author, Frank Cottrell-Boyce and illustrated by Steven Lenton.
