A dog is best friends with a robot he builds, and when he must leave the robot behind, he must find a new life without him, while the robot dreams of his friend.

even though it made me sad ( )

I found this book in a pile of children's library books at our house and it looked interesting, so I gave it quick read. It's amazing. The pictures do an incredible job telling a complex story without dialog and mostly without words (the only words appear as book titles or box labels). The story is very imaginative, straddling the line between sci-fi and a buddy story. It's a world where dogs build robots and robots have dreams, and everyone wants a friend. I can't recommend this book highly enough, especially since it only took about 10 minutes to read. ( )

Robot dreams is about a dog and a robot that are friends who become separated. The book shows their dreams and all the attempts that they make to find new friends but are always thinking about each other. The interesting thing is that this entire 208 page book is told without any words. The whole story is translated through pictures in a comic book type of style.
While the story itself seems sad overall, it is really cool to be able to interpret your own unique story from the pictures each time you read it. ( )

This book takes the reader into the dreams of a bored abandoned robot who just wishes he could have a full life. The images are soft but full of meaning. It was surprisingly sad and a little addictive. I had to keep going to see what would happen to him. I think this simply drawn yet deep story has appeal that transcends age.
