Read this book when it first came out in the 70s and it stuck with me enough that I still remember loving it in my 50s. Apr 07, John Loyd rated it really liked it. My Robot Buddy 70 pages by Alfred Slote. Al is my favorite author. Not that I like his stories the best, it's that I enjoy talking with him, and he is one of the most pleasant people that I've ever met. Robot Buddy is novella or maybe just novelette length.
So I don't know if I can count it as a full book in my reading stats! Oh, yeah, I forgot to tell you -- I keep stats for everything. That's a hyperbole, but hopefully you get the point. Jack lives in the country with no children his own age around and keeps pestering his parents to get him a robot to play with. He knows that robots are expensive and his dad really needs that mobile phone for his business.
His parents discuss the idea and they decide to get Jack the robot.

For Jack's tenth birthday they take a tour of the Atkin's robot factory, and at the end Jack is presented with his new robot friend. Slote touches a little upon whether the robot has real emotions versus being a tool, but the action part of the plot has to do with robotnappers. Since it says that on back cover I can feel safe that I'm not giving away too much, and for the intended 7 to 10 age group, a robotnapper is much more tangible than some sort of economic discussion of robots taking the jobs of people, or the real being vs.
I noticed a couple of times that a character would introduce a word and then give the definition to Jack. Very clever. It wasn't Asimov's I, Robot, but it was very evenly paced, quick reading, and had the ideas of sharing and weighing choices, without being preachy. Feb 07, Nick Bruzzano rated it really liked it. I wish the book was longer than it was but, It was a really simple and quick book that wasn't to complex.
Though the subject was basic it was a nice story about how a lonely kid gets a robot from his dad for his birthday even though his dad really needed the money for his work phone. I really enjoyed the book.

I would go back and pick it up again to recapture that feeling but I learned the hard way with The Dollhouse Murders that these books don't necessarily stand the test of Don't go around walking like a robot or you will surely be stolen by nefarious thieves is the central theme in Alfred Slote 's My Robot Buddy.
I would go back and pick it up again to recapture that feeling but I learned the hard way with The Dollhouse Murders that these books don't necessarily stand the test of time. Especially because, besides the actual robot and maybe a flying car, today's technology is more advanced than most of the things portrayed in this novel children's novel.
