From Star Wars to WALL-E, boys of all generations continue to be fascinated by robots. Here, finally, there is a book that teaches boys (and big kids alike) how to make their own! How To Build a Robot (with your dad) is a fun-filled activity book to be enjoyed by fathers and sons together. It contains twenty different robotic projects, each beautifully illustrated with step-by-step instructions, covering all things robotic: from robot suits and jet packs, to edible robots, fimo keyrings, grow-your-own-hair robots, giant robots and more.
