From the creator of Not Quite Narwhal comes the story of a young robot trying to find the meaning of “love.”
When a small robot named Z discovers a message in a bottle signed “Love, Beatrice,” they decide to find out what “love” means. Unable to get an answer from the other robots, they leave to embark on an adventure that will lead them to Beatrice—and back home again, where love was hiding all along.
Full of adventure, helpers, and lots of different definitions of what love is, this little robot’s quest to discover just that leads him unexpectedly back to the familiar and he discovers he knew what love is all along. The illustrations and premise are cute, it has a great ratio of text per page to keep things interesting, and all around it’s a sweet read.
