Rusty is a friendly robot, but not a very happy one; he’s feeling down about the way that he sounds. The other robots on Planet Robotone – Belle, Twango, Hoot and Boom-Bot – show Rusty that being a little bit different is the best way to be, and together make a raucous song and dance that celebrates their differences. This charming story about friendship, self-discovery and the strength of pooling everyone's talents together has a strong, empowering message of acceptance and embracing individuality. With wonderful, contemporary illustrations that will appeal to young children and parents alike, the story will provoke thought – and conversation – about being different, and how we should all embrace our characteristics and be comfortable and confident in ourselves.

The story is simple and it doesn't sacrifice the robot like some of the other children's books about robots. It has a simple message about the robot not liking how he sounds but then finds friends who are all different and it conveys it in a fun, kid-friendly way. Read this during story time to K-3rd and the kids loved it! (read it through a pre-programmed robot)
