“Do you want to watch a monster movie?” Robot asked.
“No,” Monkey said. “They scare me.”
“But it’s fun,” Robot said. “I like to be scared.”
“I don’t,” Monkey said. “It’s not fun to be scared. It’s only scary.”
“Let’s try it,” Robot said. “If you get scared, you can put the blanket over your head.”
“Okay,” Monkey said. He put the blanket over his head.
“The movie hasn’t started yet,” Robot said.
“I know,” Monkey said. He took the blanket off his head. “I was just practicing.”
Robot started the movie.
Monkey screamed and put the blanket over his head. “Stop the movie!” he said.
Monkey & Robot
Monkey and Robot are friends—the best kind. They simply belong together, and it never matters that silly Monkey is furry, or that gentle Robot can rust. What matters is their sharing: movies and popcorn, games of hide-and-seek, a fish tank for…a hippopotamus?
Joining the ranks of such noteworthy pairs as Bert and Ernie, Frog and Toad, and Henry and Mudge, Monkey & Robot celebrates friendship in this chapter book of four charming tales that are ideal for young readers.
