Boy + Bot meetsSchool's First Day of School in this hilarious and reassuring take on first experiences and making new friends, from a Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner.

Ultrabot is a big robot with a big problem. Its professor is planning a playdate with Becky Tingle, the little girl from next door. But Ultrabot has never been on a playdate, and it doesn’t know Becky. What if she’s mean? What if she breaks all of Ultrabot’s toys? What if she won’t share?

Packed with loads of fun details and visual humor, this reassuring friendship story speaks to the shy giant robot in all of us.

Josh Schneider is the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-winning creator ofTales for Very Picky Eaters and many popular picture books, including Princess Sparkle-Heart Gets a Makeover, Everybody Sleeps (But Not Fred), andKid Amazing vs. The Blob. Josh lives in Chicago with his wife, Dana.

â?? "A delightful, picture-perfect playdate." —Kirkus, STARRED review

"[A] delightful tale about the anxiety of making new friends"Chicago Tribune

"Schneider inserts subtle visual humor into every scene of this winning friendship story." —Publishers Weekly

“[T]he tongue-in-cheek text is counterpoint to hilarious digitally enhanced line and watercolor illustrations…. It may take several readings to glean all of Schneider’s visual gags." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"[I]ntriguing, meticulous, and detail-rich mixed-media illustrations....Kids will crack up at the playdate’s aftermath; grownups will feel the professor’s pain; all will happily revisit this extraordinary playdate over and over"—The Horn Book
