Grade 4-6 The kind of logical absurdity that was a hallmark of Wilkes' previous book, C.L.U.T.Z. (Dial, 1982), returns here in force. This time the frazzled robot CLUTZ (Combined Level Unit/Type Z), his owner Rodney and their bright pink dog Aurora are trapped in an automated GalactiCola plant controlled by a giant computer and its programmer, Dr. Rench. Certain that the plant's secret formula is part of a dire plot to take over the world, CLUTZ and Rodney are determined to escape with a sample. Dr. Rench, however, is equally certain that the two are industrial spies and is equally determined to stop them. There's not much character development in this lightly tongue-in-cheek story, but it is filled with action and good humor. CLUTZ, a sort of bargain basement C3PO, will instantly endear himself to the middle grade science fiction fans who will line up for this book. Elaine E. Knight, Lincolnu Elementary Schools, Ill.
