My Babysitter is a Robot

The first in a brilliantly funny series about a robot babysitter and the mayhem he causes. When Grandma creates a robot babysitter for twins Jake and Jess, chaos ensues!
Robin is embarrassing, clumsy and, worst of all, programmed to make them do their homework. They’re also pretty sure he thinks their dog is a baby. The twins decide they have to do something before everyone realizes that Robin is a robot. But getting rid of their new babysitter will mean putting aside their sibling squabbles and working together, which might be an even bigger challenge…

Our Review Panel says...

Disaster has struck! Jake and his twin sister Jess have the most embarrassing babysitter ever. His name is Robin and he is a robot. And when he turns up to collect them from school it is clear to see why they don’t want anything to do with him. He has a red furry coat, a beard and roller skates and along with his bobble hat he bears a striking resemblance to Father Christmas! This is a funny book with great illustrations throughout. The plot is easy to follow and ideal for children who are beginning to grow into independent readers…
