Hatke, Ben. Little Robot. First Second, 2015. $16.99. 144p. 9781626720800. Ages 6-9. P8Q8

Hatke Little RobotAlmost entirely visual, this graphic novel shows a child finding a robot friend after she sneaks out of her home. The happy explorations of the forest grow dark when a metal scout takes the robot back to a factory, but the five-year-old girl proves that she is a good friend. Bright colors highlight the scientific adventures of the female protagonist and the energy that Hatke visualizes for his readers.
