Go, Bot. Throw, Bot. Get in the boat and row, Bot! This has the feel of a classic, even though I'm not wild about the illustrations. A little girl gives simple rhyming commands to a robot until it feels ill-used and abandons the girl. She finds him and makes up for her dictatorial leanings by pushing Bot on the swing. A great early reader.

A great overview of the history of Nancy Drew. Very entertaining. A couple of spoiler alerts would not go amiss in that one story is told pretty completely. It did make me want to go and find Nancy Drew and read some of the great mysteries that were mentioned.
