The author of the hilarious Millions and Framed serves up another first class comic caper. Eric, an ageing robot with memory loss and a missing leg, is not what Alfie expected to find at the airport lost property office. But Eric has gone rogue and it’s up to Alfie to try and avert a robotic rampage. With an endearing central double act and a fast paced plot The Runaway Robot is a treat from start to finish.
Alfie is off school after an accident in which he lost both his hand and his confidence. He's lonely all day on his own. So when he
comes across Eric, a one-legged robot in need of a friend, he brings him home with him.
But a ban on humanoid robots has just been passed, which means Alfie is breaking the law by sheltering Eric.
Can he keep his new friend safe - and himself out of trouble?
A funny and heartwarming adventure about two best friends helping put themselves back together, from the award-winning Frank Cottrell-Boyce.
