No-Bot the Robot with No Bottom... a new release from Simon & Schuste :
4.75 out of 5 based on 45 reviews.

Bernard the Robot loses his bottom on the park swing, and sets off to find it.

Every time he gets close, it disappears again! Bird was using it as a nest, but it was too heavy; Bear used it in his drum kit, but it was too tinny; the Squirrels built sandcastles with it…and now it looks as if they’re sailing away in it.

Will Bernard EVER get his bottom back? This fabulous book will have kids – big and small – laughing every time.

No-Bot the Robot with No Bottom, written by Sue Hendra, is a brand new release from Simon & Schuster.

Available in paperback where all good books are sold for $14.99.  Also available as an ebook for $11.99.

    Thumbs up from hubby!

    I have to write another review for hubby. He read No-bot to the kids for the first time yesterday afternoon. I have to point out that hubby does not like to read at all. Books, instruction manuals, nothing. I’m thrilled to say he thoroughly enjoyed reading No-bot!! It was so good to hear him and the kids laughing together, I think it was a fantastic bonding experience for them. I would definitely recommend all the mummies out there to get their partner’s to read this to their children!

    Has a permanent place in my bookcase!

    After reading all the wonderful reviews on here I had to get this book for my kids. I’m pleased to say they absolutely love it. I almost know it off by heart already, I have read it that many times! It has a fantastic story line which keeps the kids amused from start to finish, with lots of giggles along the way! The illustrations are colourful and entertaining and they can spend ages just studying the pictures. No-bot has fast become a new favourite in my house and will have a place in my bookcase for many years to come. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Entertaining

    I found this to be a big hit with my two boys. We borrowed a copy from a friend who found it in a bookstore and her children also enjoyed it immensely. The story uses clear, simple language and the colorful simple picture design actively engages young listeners. The boys were easily drawn into the story and their attention engaged until the end.

    Awesome book

    This is a fantastic book, I have just hired it from the local library this morning and have already read it to the kids 3 times. We all had a good giggle while reading it. I will definitely be going to buy this book next time I am out at the main shops.

    Love it...

    So it’s now funny and acceptable to talk about bottoms in our house! Lovely illustrations, rhyming and story. The girls ask for this book to be read all the time (and the adults are happy to do so). I’d definitely recommend this to others and will look for more books by the author.

    Fantastic

    My little Miss loved it. She thought it was funny that he just forgot about his bottom at the park as she has left things at the park also. I also liked the way little Miss commented about how every one who tried to use it, then helped as best they could to let No – Bot know where it may be. She has taken it to her teacher from last year to read to the new Kindy Kids.

    Seriously Hilarious

    My two granddaughters were in hysterics about the robot loosing his bottom. The story is wonderfully funny with such a little journey. The illustrations are too cute and very bright with colouring that the girls loved to point at the different things on the pages.

    It’s a book that you can read over and over again and even i don’t mind it. It’s a very very good story!!!

    2nd Review same opinion - Fabulous book!

    This is my second review for the book – “No-Bot, The Robot with no bottom” by Sue Hendra.

    WOW! What an amazing hit this book has been with my 3 children. Who would have thought a little red Robot that goes on a mission to find his lost bottom to be so entertaining for all (even my husband!)

    My 3 year old daughter is particularly drawn to the bright colourful illustrations, my 7 year old son enjoys reading the book by himself (well apart from the Robots name of Bernard he gets a little tongue tide over that) and thoroughly enjoyed the story and my 10 year daughter old finds the need to read it to my 3 year old again and again (just an excuse I think)

    Once again the text is basic the illustrations are bright and the characters are all “friendly and welcoming” the story keeps the children turning the pages without getting bored.

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone with children especially for preschool aged children.

    A great book!

    We’ve really enjoyed reading No-Bot the Robot with No Bottom, written by Sue Hendra over and over again. It’s pictures are bright, glossy and filled with lots of colour to capture the attention and imagination of littlies. The story itself is fun as you go looking for No-bot’s bottom. Lots of fun and laughter.

    Lots of fun

    No-Bot the Robot with No Bottom, written by Sue Hendra is a very funny story. My seven year old loves reading this story to her younger cousin and thinks it is very cute. A simple, engaging story, with lovely bright pictures, helps to capture the kids attention as they go looking for Bernard’s bottom. Lots of fun!

    A BOOK THAT YOU CAN READ TO YOUR KIDS MANY TIMES OVER & OVER

    I received this book review last year and i must say my daughter still picks to read it @ bed time :) We both have a laugh @ the end suitable for all ages & great to read together @ any time or place. We have a big library @ home reading can teach a child many things & its great to start @ an early age. I always tell my daughter to read aloud the best thing you can tell a child to do. Happy reading :) PS even our Dog Gizmo enjoys listening to us read :)

    No-bot the robot

    I decided to purchase this book after reding the reviews & have read this on many occasions to my nephews who are very much into bottoms & robots. Very funny, lots of giggles are had, it has not lost it’s appeal, it’s the first book they both go for especially the older one :)

    How clever of Hendra to put ‘bottom’ into the title of a children’s picture book! I predict children who are not fluent readers will be able to decode ‘bottom’ in a second and grab it off the library or bookstore shelf. Luckily, parents and teachers can rest easy that there is nothing in the story’s content to be worried about.

    The illustrations are perfect for the under-five set: large, clear and brightly coloured. Kids will enjoy looking for Bernard the No-Bot’s bottom throughout the tale. They’ll be encouraged to look for shapes in their environment too, and rejoice with Bernard and his friends when that elusive bottom is found.

    Very cute

    This book is very cute, Its a little short but my daughter loved it, I thought it was cute all the things they used his bottom for!
    I can relate to the feeling of your bottom being \stuck in a swing!
    I would have to say that I would be very happy myself if my bottom happened to fall off!

    Holds a prominent place on the bookshelf.

    After reading other reviews I decided to purchase this book. I have read it , on more than one occasion, to a class of 24 7 year olds. It is often the children’s pick for the story of the day.It does not lose its appeal after re-reading. I love it and the kids love it.

    A cute yet funny story all young kids will love

    I originally read this book at the local library to my nephew, he loved it that much that I went and bought it for him
    the story is very funny and entertaining, he loves it so much he now can tell himself the story.
    I have purchased it since for a friends little girl, and she too loved it, both my nephew and friends little girl were 3 when they first heard it.
    Plus what kid doesn’t want an excuse to talk about bottoms!!

    Mums loved it

    We had this one at playgroup. The kids lost interest after a little while ( but that is the age they are at) Normally when this happens whomever is reading stops – there was general demand from the other Mums to hear the end of the story! Must get a copy for when she is a little older
