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.

This wordless graphic novel follows a young pup in his pursuit to make friends. He buys a robot, puts him together, and spends quality time with him until he breaks down after a swim and is left behind on a beach. The pup, trying to recreate the magic, goes about spending time with other animals, but the spark remains elusive. Eventually he makes a new 'bot and the robot is found and fixed by another, new friend. The art is charming and leads the reader through the various dreams of the robot and the adventures of the pup. It meanders a little, and it's not always clear what goes wrong with his new friends, but generally, a solid, charming and worthwhile read. Great for fans of peculiar characters, graphic novels or friendship stories.

This is a story about a robot and a dog who happen to be friends. One day they go to the beach and the robot ends up rusting out and remaining on the beach for over a year. Dog basically forgets about him and creates a new "best" friend.
