It's another busy day for robots—make sure you're not late for Robot School! On the way, say hello to TrafficBot, who helps robots cross busy streets, and Professor Nutzundbolts, the principal. Check out Director Steelburg, who is filming a new movie on Aluminum Avenue. After a day of steely adventures, it's time for a quick oil bath before recharging overnight for another chrome-filled day in Robot Town.

“Heshka has a lot of fun with each scene and provides plenty to look at.” —Kirkus Reviews on Welcome to Monster Town

“Reminiscent of cartoon styles of the 1940s and 1950s and spooky in a kid-friendly sort of way.” —School Library Journal on Welcome to Monster Town
