Norton the Robot is intrigued by his discovery of a lone flower one day and sets about trying to care for it, with amusing and ultimately poignant results. A new book from the acclaimed creator of Blue & Bertie, Kristyna Litten, about making friends, appreciating the wonder of nature, and seeing that sometimes there is more to life than it might seem.
gleebooks review: Reminiscent of the Pixar film Wall-E, this story of Norton the robot’s attempts to care for the single flower he discovers in his mechanical landscape is both beguiling and poignant. Containing subtexts of friendship, Nature and beauty, it is simple enough for young readers, with a provocative depth as well. I shan’t be surprised if Litten’s endearing picture book is an award contender. Lynndy
