My Brother, the Robot

By Bonny Becker

Chip didn't think anything could be worse than almost failing fifth grade until his new brother, Simon, arrived. Simon is the latest in robotic technology. He looks just like a human boy, but he is ten times better-better at being polite, cleaning his room, spouting the multiplication tables at summer school, and swimming, Chip's favorite sport. Dad hopes that Simon will set a good example for Chip. Instead, Simon takes Chip's place-even on the swim team! Young readers, all too familiar with the pressures of pleasing their parents, succeeding in school, and winning in competition, will love the way man triumphs over machine in this highly entertaining book.
