Description-

  • James Patterson's new series proves it's hard to fit in ... when your brother is a robot!In this new 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!

  • Publisher's Weekly

    October 13, 2014
    Patterson and Grabenstein, collaborators on the I Funny books, launch the House of Robots series, about Sammy Hayes-Rodriguez and his family, whose household brims with robots invented by his genius mother. Fifth-grader Sammy is mortified when his mother insists that E, her newest invention, accompany him to school. The comically disruptive robot—who Neufeld draws to resemble C-3PO crossed with a stereotypical geek—contradicts teachers, escalates a food fight, and sparks a fire after his feverish recitation of science facts overloads his circuit boards. Underlying the novel’s laughs are themes of friendship, compassion, and family, particularly in regard to Sammy’s devotion to his younger sister, who is housebound due to severe immunodeficiency, and his deepening relationship with his “bro-bot.” E’s disappearance interjects a splash of mystery into the story, while Neufeld’s (Treasure Hunters) raucous cartoons and comics sequences (not all seen by PW) amp up the comedy with slapstick action, metafictional gags, and lots of robo-gadgetry. Ages 8–12. Author’s agent: (for Patterson) Robert Barnett and Deneen Howell, Williams & Connolly LLP; (for Grabenstein) Eric Myers, Spieler Agency. Illustrator’s agency: Shannon Associates.

  • AudioFile Magazine Jack Patterson's dynamic performance captures the emotions of fifth-grader Sammy Rodriguez-Hayes and his "brother"--the robot he calls "Error." Sammy's youth and awkwardness are effectively conveyed by Patterson with an energetic voice and well-timed, perfectly delivered quips. Patterson's portrayal of the robots is also superbly done, with a fractured, irregular pace to convey their fragmented speech. The addition of sound effects of echoing and electronic pings adds another dimension to their realistic metallic voices. Patterson's lively presentation of all the characters is immediately engaging, and he deftly modulates his tone to highlight the moments of joy and seriousness in this endearing story. M.F.
