Wall-e has just arrived in space and is searching for his friend, Eve. To his surprise, robots are everywhere. From paint-bots to crane-bots, each quietly does its job. But when Wall-e spots Eve, a boisterous chase begins, and suddenly everything goes haywire. This spirited take on the film Wall-e features lively verse and a fresh visual approach from a Pixar artist.

PreSchool-Grade 1—Pixar's film WALL*E inspired this rhymed tour of robots at work. While seeking his blue-"eyed" girl friend, thick-wheeled robot hero WALL*E admires the diligence of his hugely diverse fellow bots. After some accidental chaos and crashes, the pair finally reunite to hold "hands" at the robot dance. Fans of things mechanical will appreciate the wall-to-wall collages of dozens of types of busy machines. The compositions vary from orderly to discordant, and Butcher embellishes each spread with changing palettes that complement the yellow-bodied hero with an E.T.-shaped head. Thorpe's verb-rich text and free use of exclamation points will make for an energetic read-aloud, but the plot is a bit meager.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
