Bernard the Robot loses his bottom on the park swing, and sets off to find it. Every time he gets close, it disappears again! Bird was using it as a nest, but it was too heavy; Bear used it in his drum kit, but it was too tinny; the Squirrels built sandcastles with it...and now it looks as if they're sailing away in it. Will Bernard EVER get his bottom back?

My son loves this story about a Robot who loses his bottom. The pictures are colourful and my son likes looking for the robot's bottom on each page. There are lots of things that look like the robot's bottom and turn out to be other items. It is a funny book.

Ok so my son absolutely loves this book as it obviously is about a bottom and what 5 year old boy does not like talking about bottoms!  Great story lovely illustrations very amusing, this books is about a robot who accidentally loses his bottom and how he goes about finding it.  Highly recommended.

Another hilarious book by the wonderful Sue Hendra!
Bernard the robot loses his bottom whilst at the park- my daughter loved his wacky, funny and lovable journey as he searches for his bottom. I love listening to her giggling and laughing and joining in with the story.  Wonderful illustrations that complement the story with bright and colourful characters. I would definitely recommend this book.

This is a great picture book for younger/toddler readers. My daughter first came across this at the age of three and we have revisited on many occasions. This is a lovely story about a robot with no bottom and his journey to find it. Along the way there are many giggles and the bold, colourful pictures are a delight.

We definitely recommend this one - another success by Sue Hendra.

Such a great, funny story that gets asked for again and again. One of those library borrows that you have to go and buy because the kids love it so much. Keeps them guessing to the end. Where has his bottom gone and a great ending. Fun to read as a grown up too. Bright, bold illustrations that perfectly fit the story.

My boys aged 4 &6 chose this book on a library visit. They found this book hilarious and would often sit snuggled up together laughing and giggling, whilst telling each other the story so I was one happy Mum.  The pictures were bright and bold and the text was just about right for my 6 year old to read himself.

This book has a lovely sense of humour running through it, and my 2 year old especially loves the illustrations. The storyline is easy for children to follow, and the ending is brilliant! We've been reading this night after night for about 3 months, both my children never tire of it! I would recommend it for boys and girls from 1 - 6 years old.

When I read this book to the children I think I was just as excited as they were, I'd been wanting to read it for ages and so when it arrived from the library we read it straight away. I think it's a really great story and so fun to see what happens to the robots bottom and how all the animals use it which made the children giggle. The illustrations are so lovely and the children spent some time just looking at the pictures on their own. The children thought the book was hilarious and loved reading it so much they wanted to read it again. Bernard the robot is such a likeable character with a brilliant story!

This is such a funny little story that Leo enjoys every time we read it. After leaving his poor bottom behind on the swing, Bernard discovers it has been used as a drum amongst other things and he eventually finds it being uses to make sandcastles. He promises to be more careful in future but then he forgets his arm - which Leo finds very amusing.

Another amusing book from Sue Hendra.  Bright and bold illustrations, and a short simple story line with an amusing theme to keep little ones interested.  Bernard has lost his bottom, and enlists his friends along the way to help him find it.  What other uses could a bottom possibly have!? Luckily for Bernard, he does get his bottom back in the end.

The story is of a robot who leaves his bum on a swing. He then walks around looking for it and he keeps imagining hes seen it in lots of different places. My kids enjoy the daftness of this story and the illustrations are good.
