“This is the BEST book about robot building I have ever read. EVER.”
Welcome to your Awesome Robot is the very first book from our brand new children’s imprint Flying Eye Books. You can find out more about Flying Eye on Facebook and Twitter.
Build your very own awesome automaton step by step, from your base unit, to the towering, terrifying, tremor-triggering robot of your dreams.
This book provides you with everything you need to create a robot costume from objects you’d normally just throw out and have a fun day in!
Designed to be enjoyed by children with an adult on hand – this book provides perfect material for a fun family activity day or a kids’ workshop. Viviane Schwarz has illustrated hilarious comics throughout the book to explain the blueprint instruction pages, so this is just as much a story as it is an activity book.
Viviane Schwarz was born in Germany. As a child she loved books so much that she mostly ate them. Once she realised there were people out there making them, she decided to make her own, to taste. She has been nominated for several awards and even won some too – most recently she won the 2011 Booktrust Best New Illustrator Award. Her There are Cats in this Book was shortlisted for the 2010 Cilip Greenaway award for the best illustrated book and also won the popular “Shadowing” category, which is voted for by children.
