Summary: Dog wants a friend, so he orders and assembles a robot. This is the start of a wonderful friendship, and the two have many fun times together. When they go to the beach, Robot decides to join Dog in the water; this proves to be an unfortunate decision as Robot gets rusty and can no longer move. Unsure what to do, Dog panics and leaves Robot on the beach. The rest of the book tells the story of each friend as he misses the other and dreams of a reunion.
Thoughts: I was amazed at how entertaining and touching a story can be that is told completely through illustrations. This is a simple book but carries deep meaning. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and would recommend it to readers of all ages!
