Product Details


Meet the newest odd couple in the early reader section: fussy, compulsive Rabbit and overly logical Robot. . . .Bell’s crisp, cheery cartooning adds visual punctuation and elaboration in all the right places, and she handles moments of both calamity and reconciliation with aplomb. Delightful.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The light ridiculousness of a machine and animal hanging out together provides plenty of yuks (Rabbit tops his pie with carrots and lettuce; Robot prefers bolts and screws), and Bell breaks up the easy-reading text with warm, goofy cartoon illustrations. Kids will welcome these new besties to their early-reading rotation.

Make way for another endearing, odd-couple pair of friends in beginning-reader land…A good choice for those ready to launch into more advanced texts.
—Kirkus Reviews

Hilarious details such as Rabbit telling Robot to turn down his Volume Knob anytime he yells, and the sight of Rabbit and Robot both wearing Rabbit-shaped pajamas–Robot forgot his and had to borrow a pair–will attract the adoration of early chapter-book readers, who will undoubtedly hope for more from this duo
—School Library Journal

The large font, simple, short sentence structure, and numerous attractive illustrations make this accessible for readers who are beyond Willems’ Elephant and Piggie series but not quite ready for lengthier chapter books. There’s plenty of humor, both in the text and the crisp and simply composed digital illustration.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

An engaging, well-paced story, told with simple (but not too simple) vocabulary is tough to write, but Cece Bell has nailed RABBIT AND ROBOT: THE SLEEPOVER. Let’s hope it’s the first of a series.
