The Lovereading4Kids comment

Lots of laughs as Bernard the robot loses his bottom! He just jumps off the swing and leaves it behind. Where on earth does it go next? Everyone thinks they have seen the bottom somewhere but Bernard can’t find it anywhere! Young readers will love helping Bernard search for his missing behind!


No-Bot, the Robot with No Bottom by Sue Hendra

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?

To mark the publication of No-Bot the Robot with No Bottom, Simon & Schuster will launch The Wonderful World of Sue Hendra website ( and have offered booksellers, librarians and teachers the chance to throw their own No-Bot Party by signing up for event activity packs.


Loved the range of characters in the book, and the simple, colourful illustrations. * Jennifer's Little World Blog * Apart from the boldly illustrated zany story which young children will doubtless love, this book offers a host of possibilities for creative thinking. * Red Reading Hub * In a word
