Robot Zombie Frankenstein! by Annette Simon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
And the award for my favorite picture book of the year (yes, I know it's still only June) goes to... Robot Zombie Frankenstein! I just brought it into my library and made at least four of my co-workers stop what they were doing to read it.
The plot, in haiku format:
Two robots are friends
Costume contest escalates
Pie for everyone!
Seriously, treat yourself. Given its simplicity, the story is surprisingly complete, and the art is just delightful. (Added educational bonus: the robots and their costumes are comprised mainly of basic shapes in bright colors, so it could also be used as a teaching tool.)
I'm really looking forward to using this one in storytime!
