Synopsis

The Bot That Scott Built by Kim Norman

When Scott builds a bot, a bippity-bot, sparks fly - and his entire classroom goes-wild. Before long, fiery ants and carnivorous plants, a freaky frog, a big-bellied boa and an exploding 'volcano' have wreaked total havoc. Can Scott's bot, which started it all, manage the mess? Cheers for the handy hero! A cumulative story with fun that grows and grows and GROWS.
