Clink was a state-of-the-art robot with the dazzling ability to make toast and play music at the same time. But that was many years ago.
Now kids want snazzier robots who do things like play baseball and bake cookies. So day after day, Clink sits on a shelf and sadly watches as his friends leave with their new owners. He almost gives up on ever finding a home—until the day Clink spies a boy who just might be able to be the right one for him. . . .
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPucchio and new talent Matthew Myers comes a funny and heartwarming story that lovers of Corduroy will adore.
Clink has a hard time standing out when compared to the other fancy, colorful robots in the shop. He tries to keep up, but he’s just a little too old, and honestly, starting to fall apart. His luck changes one day when a peculiar young boy with a love for music hears Clink belting out an old fashioned toon.
