Description

This is Robomop, a hardworking robot who's good at his job, which is cleaning...well, yes, the public restroom. But it's not all mopping, slopping, rubbing, and scrubbing. Robomop also does a wicked honky-tonk dance to the window washer's radio, and he dreams of seeing the sun and sky. So when he's carried outside one day, Robomop believes his wish has come true at last. Has it? Well one thing is for certain: for this little robot, finding his place in the world means never giving up trying.




About the Author
SEAN TAYLOR says of Boing!, "It's based on a true story. Or at least something I read in a newspaper once. Somewhere in Eastern Europe, a trampolining champion did accidentally jump out his own window. Apparently." Sean Taylor and his wife divide their time between Sao Paulo and London.

Edel Rodriguez was born in Havana, Cuba. He left for America on a boat with his parents and sister when he was 8 years old. His drawings and illustrations have appeared in four picture books, including Float Like a Butterfly and Oye, Celia!, on stamps for the U.S. Postal Service, The New Yorker, and posters for Broadway shows. Edel has also been an art director at TIME Magazine for over a decade. He lives with his wife and daughter in New Jersey.
