Battered wheels, rusty cogs, broken springs: Norton, an adorable robot, collects this junk and uses it to create amazing inventions. But one day he and his dog Alpha find something they ve never seen before: a flower! At first, they re baffled . . . but when a seed blossoms into a flowery field, the two discover the true magic of nature. Includes a big, stunning gatefold!”
I think this book is super cute! The illustrations are darling, and I love that Norton the inventor finds a flower and tries to figure out what it "does." Even though he doesn't quite succeed, he decides that having something that just makes you smile is important, too. :)
This was such a clever book. I loved that Norton was so creative and mostly just a hard worker. He went out each day and gathered things and then made something out of them. When we found a flower, he was unsure of what its use could be. I love what he discovers and think it is a great thought for each of us to just enjoy what is beautiful.
