BOOT: The Rusty Rescue : Book 2 by Shane Hegarty
This is a thrill-ride of an adventure, with illustrations by Ben Mantle bringing Boot’s world to life. Fans of Toy Story and Charlie Changes into a Chicken will love this hilarious, warm-hearted story about a small robot on a big adventure, full of fun, friendship and a warehouse full of bouncy castles. ‘Fast, funny and furious.
These are definitely my favourite robots.’ Eoin Colfer Toy robot Boot has come a long way since it woke up in a scrapyard with only two and a half glitchy memories. It has a home with its robot pals in an abandoned amusement arcade, and has discovered what true happiness is – although it’s still not sure why humans are so leaky and weird … But when Boot and the gang stumble upon Rusty, an old, broken robot, forgotten in the back of a testing lab, it’s time to spring into action.
Boot knows there’s something special about Rusty – but can they free the old robot and help it find its purpose? Illustrated throughout in glorious black and white by the award-winning Ben Mantle, this is an unforgettable tale of resilience and hope. Read more of Boot’s adventures – shortlisted for the Sainsbury’s Book Award – including Boot: small robot: BIG adventure and The Creaky Creatures.
