9780141315171: Snail Boy And The Toilet Bots

Connor's grandad has gone into an experimental bungalow run by caring robots. But Nurse Bot, the robot in charge, starts to become alarmingly bossy and ends up imprisoning Grandad in the bungalow. Determined to find out who is behind the robots, Connor and his friend Simon track an injured robot to a nearby warehouse where they discover a mad scientist who has modelled the Nurse Bots on his old nanny - a bully who obviously hated children. Can Connor and Simon outwit Nurse Bot and rescue Grandad? Yes, with the help of Simon's sister - did I say she was a were-weasel?

About the Author:

Susan Gates was born in Grimsby. When she was at school her favourite reading was science fiction and she had a craze for American Literature, especially detective fiction. She went on to study American Literature at Warwick University. She then became a teacher and taught in Malawi, Africa. She has three children and lives in County Durham, England.

From AudioFile:

The sparkling Nigel Lambert shines with this timely story. Connor is delighted when Grandad agrees to try out a modern home in which the elderly can remain independent with the help of robots. Chief among them is Nurse Bot, who monitors Grandad's every move. Lambert characterizes the overly responsible robot with a heavy Scots accent. He expertly mimics the kids, Grandad himself, and Nurse Bot's constant refrain, "Nanny knows best." Soon Grandad is held prisoner by Nurse Bot, and Connor must rescue him. When Nurse Bot develops a crush on Grandad, she develops an American southern accent, which adds to the hilarity and further demonstrates Lambert's skill. This unique story could teach kids what just might be ahead in their later years. S.G.B.
