Give a 'Bot a Bone

Logan and his robot cousin Java are playing ball in the garage, a.ka. Mom’s lab, when they accidentally break her haircutting machine. They need to get a new one fast! The good news: they find one online. The bad news: it’s going to cost a lot of money.

So the pair tries out a series of jobs to make some quick cash—dusting the furniture (Mom didn’t mean dumping the dust from the vacuum on the couch), holding a flea market (10 cents a flea!), and even starting a dog grooming/walking business (which is pretty ruff).

Finally, they decide to try a bake sale, only they’re out of chocolate chips, so they use bacon instead. Customers think their cookies are disgusting, but a dog accidentally gets one and scarfs it right down. Logan and Java make a lousy cookie, but a perfect dog treat!

After earning the money they need, they buy the new haircutting machine and slip it into Mom’s workshop so she’ll never know. Or will she?

International bestselling author Nancy Krulik and her incredibly talented daughter, Amanda Burwasser, spin hilarious high jinks in the fifth book in the Project Droid series, which combines the literalness of Amelia Bedelia with a wacky modern edge, making for hours of laughter. And the fun continues with an activity in the back!
