Today, we're joining a RABT BLOG TOUR already in progress, starring a new(ish) Children's release via Mascot Books. Our lead is beside himself with worry about this, that, and the other, and try as he might, he can't seem to see the other side of the rainbow. Nothing a little help from his friends can't fix as well as the affection of a new little....toaster. What?! Don't worry, you'll see. Ready or not, here comes today's ebook of choice...
Okay, first of all I have a penchant for attaching "ish" to several dozen things throughout the day, especially at work (hey, it's have fun or go crazy, take your pick), so the curiously quirky title drew me right in. Then we have Melvin....awwww! How can you NOT want to know what is making this little robot sad...ish?! I was sold hook, line, and sinker....
From his penchant for repairs utlizing that sacred tool of the trade (duct tape) to his infatuation with a certain Ladybug bot (Melvin and Marilyn, come on...they were meant to be!), we follow Melvin through a typical day filled with potential that simply ends in despair. Poor Melvin, will he ever get his day? Well, as it seems, with the help of a little B.T. (that's Burnt Toast to the uninitiated), he most certainly can....and even those heartbreaks of the past can be cleared away like the lingering smells of burned bread when the lines of communication are open, leaving room for a chance at a happy(ish) ever after.
In the end, the story was a great reminder that we are all different, but those differences are what make us remarkable and no one should hold their head down in shame for being themselves. A frequent customer at my last job use to say HOPE stands for Hold On, Pain Ends...and that indeed is a hard truth to learn, but a truth nonetheless. Recommended for readers of all ages because there is something to take away from it no matter your walk of life, age, class, or modem speed.
