Rusty is a sad robot because he has a permanent squeak, which means ‘if he couldn’t like his squeak, then he couldn’t like himself.’ Faced with his lack of self-esteem, he can only go looking for other robots that might be able to help. In this jolly picture book that abounds in robots he finds them in spades! There is Belle who rings ‘ding’ wherever she goes, Hoot makes a honk, and Twango ‘twangs’. There are others as well, and Rusty soon learns that everyone makes a different noise, but together they can make even more wonderful sounds: ‘It’s OK to be different. It’s OK to be me. My sound makes me special. That’s how we should all be.’ The fun rhyming text and the marvellous, inventive, and very different robots are a joy to behold; this will be a great way to introduce children to the marvels of being diverse and special.
