Warm-hearted fable of a stay-at-home husband who learns an important lesson in life when an unusual creature enters his life.

With all the charm and humour of THE ROSIE PROJECT and ABOUT A BOY mingled with the heart-swelling warmth of PADDINGTON BEAR MOVIE.

A story of the greatest friendship ever assembled.

Ben Chambers wakes up to find something rusty and lost underneath the willow tree in his garden. Refusing to throw it on the skip as his wife Amy advises, he takes it home


What I Thought

What a wonderful and warm-hearted story! Even there was a robot in it, it didn't give me headache 'coz of technology explanations. Yes..this story is more like a family drama rather than a sci-fi.

There's more to him than a metal box [page. 190]

In the end of this book, I believe everybody would love Tang. An escaped robot, the oldest model, but has a 'special' thing. He developed. And it helped our hero, Ben Chamber, fixed his broken life, accidentally. I love how Deborah Install described Ben as a phlegmatic, jobless and lack of will to reached something in his life (even though he took veteranian surgeon as his major). We could guess the ending, but still....I feel it's a good ending. I love it. I smiled, I laughed and I cried within the journey of Ben and Tang.

No, Ben is not leaking. Ben is healing [page. 179]
