    One thought on “My Robot Buddy”

    1. Read this book when it first came out in the 70s and it stuck with me enough that I still remember loving it in my 50s.

    2. My Robot Buddy (1975) 70 pages by Alfred Slote.Al is my favorite author. Not that I like his stories the best, it's that I enjoy talking with him, and he is one of the most pleasant people that I've ever met.Robot Buddy is novella or maybe just novelette length. So I don't know if I can count it as a full book in my reading stats! Oh, yeah, I forgot to tell you -- I keep stats for everything. That's a hyperbole, but hopefully you get the point.Jack lives in the country with no children his own a [...]

    3. I wish the book was longer than it was but, It was a really simple and quick book that wasn't to complex. Though the subject was basic it was a nice story about how a lonely kid gets a robot from his dad for his birthday even though his dad really needed the money for his work phone. I really enjoyed the book.

    4. Don't go around walking like a robot or you will surely be stolen by nefarious thieves is the central theme inAlfred Slote's My Robot Buddy.

The idea of having a Robot BFF was practically all I thought about for several months.I would go back and pick it up again to recapture that feeling but I learned the hard way with The Dollhouse Murders that these books don't necessarily stand the test o [...]

    5. Cute short novel about a futuristic earth family with one young boy that's an only child, Jack. Jack is lonely and wants his parents to buy him a robot so he will have a friend to play with. On Jack's birthday his parents take him to tour a robot factory and he suspects he may get his own robot before he leaves that day. Good story for kids ages 8 - 12.
