ALA Booklist
Geisel Honor Book creator Milgrim (Go, Otto, Go!, 2016) returns with another alien- and robot-filled easy reader. Here green-headed extraterrestrial Zip zaps his antenna to create a robot, which he promptly orders about: "Get me tea,' Zip tells his bot. Make it mint, and make it hot!'" There's a glitch, however, for the machine returns with a pie, which it pitches into Zip's eye. Annoyed, Zip tries to destroy his creation, but his repeated zaps only multiply the bot. What to do? Make tea, of course, and enjoy all that lovely pie. Brief, predictable text combines with simple comic-style art to create a satisfying story of technology gone amok. Purples, greens, and mauve predominate, while expressive eyes convey a range of emotions. Smart, sassy, and fun.

Zip the unlucky magician gets into another hilarious (and sticky) situation in the second book in the Adventures of Zip Ready-to-Go! series from author-illustrator David Milgrim, who was awarded a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor for his Ready-to-Read, Go, Otto, Go!

Zip has zapped a bot. Zip tells the bot what to do. Will the bot listen? (Spoiler alert: The bot does not listen and Zip learns an important lesson, complete with a pie being thrown in his face!)

Perfect for kids at the beginning of their reading journeys, Poof! A Bot! was written for children who have learned the alphabet and are ready to start reading! And what better way to get kids excited than with a hilarious out-of-this-world adventure featuring words they can actually read and starring a zany magician?

Each Ready-to-Go! Ready-to-Read includes a note to parents explaining what their child can expect, a guide at the beginning for readers to become familiar with the words they will encounter in the story, and reading comprehension questions at the end. Each Ready-to-Go! story contains no more than 100 words and features sight words, rhyming words, and repetition to help children reinforce their new reading skills. In this book, readers will learn thirty-five sight words and six words from one word family. So come on and get reading with Zip!
