Can You Find My Robot’s Arm?

Publisher: Tundra Books
Robot has lost his arm -- can you help him find a new one? Step into a charming mechanical world invented by a striking new picture book artist.

One morning, a robot wakes up to find he is missing an arm. He and his robo buddy search inside and outside the house, through a garden, an amusement park, a library and even a candy shop, but it's nowhere to be found. Where can the arm be, and what might make a suitable replacement? A lollipop? A fish bone? How about a fork?

Can You Find My Robot's Arm? humorously invites children to explore the beautiful and intricate hand-cut images of Chihiro Takeuchi.
