Books About Robots

Test

Sick robots, killer robots, naughty robots, sleepover-ruining robots, wild robots and even NO-bots! 

We love reading books about robots. They've got adventure, fun, emotion and can sometimes be quite futuristic! But we definitely are not the only ones to love these cyborg creatures and the list of robot books is lengthly to say the least! 

So we've gone through reviews, releases old and new and have selected the very best robot books as a comprehensive list you can come back to whenever you're in need for some good old robotics. 

From board books like That's Not My Robot! to picture books like Ten Little Robots and Harry and the Robots ... from graphic novels like Future Ratboy and the Attack of the Killer Robot Grannies and CatStronauts: Robot Rescue to chapter books like A Robot Girl Ruined My Sleepover ... and ending off with middle grade much-loved books like Festergrimm, there is a book for all ages and reading needs. 

What will be your robot of choice?
