Description

Five robots. One unforgettable journey. Their programming will never be the same. Wall-E meets The Wild Robot in this middle grade instant classic about five robots on a mission to rescue their inventor from the corporation that controls them all. Cog looks like a normal twelve-year-old boy. But his name is short for A??cognitive development,A? and he was built to learn. But after an accident leaves him damaged, Cog wakes up in an unknown labA??and Gina, the scientist who created and cared for him, is nowhere to be found. Surrounded by scientists who want to study him and remove his brain, Cog recruits four robot accomplices for a mission to find her. Cog, ADA, Proto, Trashbot, and CarA??s journey will likely involve much cognitive development in the form of mistakes, but Cog is willing to risk everything to find his way back to Gina. In this charming stand-alone adventure, Greg van Eekhout breathes life and wisdom into an unforgettable character and crafts a story sure to earn its place among beloved classics like Katherine ApplegateA??s The One and Only Ivan.

Professional reviews

"Narrator James Fouhey gives life and heart to a group of misfit robots on a mission to save themselves from the evil AI corporation "uniMIND." Cog (whose name is short for "cognitive development") is a robot who looks and acts remarkably human. After an accident leaves him damaged, Cog wakes up in a lab surrounded by scientists who want to remove his brain. With the help of four robot accomplices, Cog escapes and embarks upon a funny, action-packed adventure to find the human engineer who built him. Fouhey creates a variety of distinct robot and human voices. Most memorable is Cog's, whose voice is na•vetŽ that makes him sympathetic and endearing. S.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
