About the Story

Sally is the world’s foremost inventor under the age of twelve, and she just knows she can build a better brother than the messy, smelly version she has.

Sally’s invention – Brobot – is fantastic, that is until the remote gets broken and Brobot careens out of control.
Sally realises that maybe there’s more to a brother than just his inconveniences.

Brobot is laugh out loud funny!

Full of humour, chaos, delightful visual jokes and some pretty amazing robot impressions, this story, read by author/illustrator James Foley himself, will have you in stitches. Perfect for all those children (and adults!) who have ever longed for the perfect sibling or a robot friend to do their chores.
