illustrated by Dan Santat
It’s a terrible thing when a giant robot rampages in your city. It’s even worse when it’s your fault.
★ “Comic-book, picture-book and movie styles come together in a well-designed package….A must-have.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
★ “Santat and Barnett collaborate seamlessly on this slapstick adventure about a pigtailed, bespectacled science fair entrant trying unsuccessfully to control her prize-winning robot… Barnett’s telegraphic text packs wicked humor into economical, comic book-style lines, while Santat’s skylines pay homage to old monster movies… Blueprints for the robot and the genetically altered toad she deploys to defeat it are included on the endpapers, but, kids, don’t try this at home!”
