In Ryan Sias's Zoe and Robot, Let's Pretend, a young girl tries to teach her robot how to pretend, but how do you use your imagination when you're a robot? Sias's vivid cartoons lend wit and warmth to a funny friendship.
"This graphic novel for young readers is very fun, combining simple text, colorful cartoon illustrations and a fleshed out story that kids can relate to . . . This delightful book reminded me in some ways of Green Eggs and Ham, with a young child trying to coax a grown up to play and try new things." -- Great Kids Books

"A precocious girl teaches her robot friend the art of imagination. Cheerful Zoe, accessorized with a bubblegum-pink cat-eared cap, is determined to teach her friend Robot the art of playing pretend. Amassing a “mountain” of pillows, she suggests they “climb” to the top of the peak, though for literal Robot, this causes great difficulties; all he can see is a tottering pile of cushions. Through Zoe’s sheer persistence and ingenuity, she carefully guides the robot into the world of imagination, and the pair spends a satisfying afternoon mountaineering indoors. Bright colors and oversize panels make this early reader graphic tale particularly attractive to younger readers." -- Kirkus Reviews
