In the second installment of the Harry and Horsie books, the adventure-seeking duo is on a mission…a mission for cookies. Harry’s mother has perplexingly placed the cookie jar on top of the refrigerator where it is out of the reach of little Harry. How will Harry and Horsie ever satisfy their grumbling tummies? By building a robot to help them reach the cookie jar, of course! Disaster strikes, however, when their robot develops a sweet tooth of its own, and suddenly all of the cookies in the entire city are in jeopardy.
Cookiebot! is an entertaining glimpse inside the mind of a child. Katie Van Camp does a great job of capturing the spirit of a little boy with a big imagination and his devotion to his favorite stuffed toy. Lincoln Agnew’s bold, retro-inspired illustrations convey an innocence and exuberance perfectly suited for the energetic story. The reader is easily transported into young Harry’s world where a refrigerator becomes a skyscraper, boxes and utensils become a giant robot, and a stuffed horse becomes a hero. Readers who fell in love with Harry and Horsie in their first adventure will surely enjoy this next installment as well.
