Summary

A modern take on the Sorcerer's Apprentice when a girl decides to build an intelligent robot who will do her homework for her.

Molly should be doing her homework, but instead, she builds a robot to do it for her. The robot is pretty clever ... so clever that it decides to make another robot. Then that robot makes another one. Before long, an army of slightly-too-clever-for-their-own-good robots are running around town causing chaos.

But when robot number one gets wind of Molly's plan to shut them down, the mechanical army set out to get rid of the humanoid once and for all. Now, Molly must race against time to stop the mega-robot invasion... and hand in her homework!

Book of the week








Plenty of joyful hilarity with a deftly slotted in message about the perils of fake news. Kids will love the embarrassing parents in cycling lycra who leave their daughter at home to do her homework, under the supervision of the nosy neighbour.


No one wants to do their homework, right? So why not build a robot to do it for you? And what if that robot gets ideas of its own and doesn't want to do the homework it was programmed to do, and then the media gets wind of what's happening...


Madcap in the funniest of ways with Tom McLaughlin's trademark humour, this is perfect for newly confident readers to really get their teeth into, and with some challenging ideas and vocabulary at times too!
