Synopsis

The Robot Who Couldn't Cry by Karen J. Hodgson

The Robot Who Couldn't Cry is a full-colour picture book geared to children aged 3-6. It tells the story of Rusty, a sad robot who believes that crying might make him feel better. The trouble is robots can't cry - it's the way that they're made - Dina's rich and original illustrations bring to life a quaint and loveable cast of old-fashioned toys, each with his or her own idea about how best to help Rusty. Hodgson, a former journalist, lives in south-east England. She is also author of Hugh's Blue Day and The Teeny-Weeny Walking Stick, both published by Hogs Back Books. Dinas was born in Slatina in Romania. A graduate of the Ecole Des Beaux Arts in Bucharest, she moved to France in 2005. She works mainly in oils and acrylics. In addition to her illustrations, she has recently worked on the film sets for Modigliana, and the French saga Les Rois Maudits, starring Jeanne Moreau and Gerard Depardieu.
