Cosmo and the Robot

by Brian Pinkney

This book is about a boy named Cosmo who lives on the planet Mars. When his friend Rex the robot breaks, his parents buy him the new Solar System Utility Belt to cheer him up. With his new belt, he is able to fix his robot friend. My kids liked this book. I, on the other hand, was not a big fan. There was nothing wrong with the book, it just seemed to have a kid-friendly sci-fi feel to it and I am just not a big sci-fi fan.
