In this new highly-illustrated series from James Patterson, an extraordinary robot signs up for an ordinary fifth grade class... and elementary school will never be the same!
It was never easy for Sammy Hayes-Rodriguez to fit in, so he's dreading the day when his genius mom insists he bring her newest invention to school: a walking, talking robot he calls E--for "Error". Sammy's no stranger to robots--his house is full of a colorful cast of them. But this one not only thinks it's Sammy's brother... it's actually even nerdier than Sammy. Will E be Sammy's one-way ticket to Loserville? Or will he prove to the world that it's cool to be square? It's a roller-coaster ride for Sammy to discover the amazing secret E holds that could change family forever... if all goes well on the trial run!

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.
Gr 4–6—Sammy Hayes-Rodriguez is subject to the most awful, most embarrassing thing ever: Egghead, his mother's brilliant but socially inept robot will be joining him in fifth grade. Instead of being thrilled by his robo-bro, Sammy is mortified as "E" tries to enhance school bus boarding safety, fact-checks the teachers, bear-hugs Sammy at inappropriate times, and even causes a fire. Listeners also meet Sammy's home-schooled sister Maddie, whose autoimmune disorder makes her susceptible to infection, and his "second best friend" Trip, who jealously acquires a robot of his own. Jack Patterson is an excellent narrator who deploys a variety of voices, including a distinctive one for E. The 75 short chapters (most between two and three minutes) are full of tween humor, funny robot descriptions, and multicultural and nontraditional characters (both human and robotic.) An included PDF file contains 165 of Juliana Neufeld's illustrations. VERDICT Suggested for purchase where listeners enjoy the "Diary of Wimpy Kid" and "Dork Diaries" series.—Maggie Knapp, Trinity Valley School, Fort Worth, TX
