Synopsis

Frank N. Stine's Robot by Alan Durant

Frank N. Stine is a shy boy who has few friends. When he makes himself a robot friend from a broken toaster, he finds that things begin to change, but not in ways he expected. Frank N. Stine's Robot is a book-banded reading book for more confident readers, carefully levelled at White Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 877-word fiction story is suitable for ages 7 - 8. Frank N.Stine's Robot features a more demanding text with extended vocabulary and literary devices. It has more clauses in sentences, the use of metaphor is introduced, and the story plot is more involved. Frank N. Stine's Robot is part of Ransom Reading Stars, a structured programme for children learning to read. The series has fifteen levels: four phonics levels and eleven book band levels (Pink through to Lime).
