(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Alfie is off school after an accident in which he lost both his hand and his confidence. He's lonely all day on his own. So when he
comes across Eric, a one-legged robot in need of a friend, he brings him home with him.

But a ban on humanoid robots has just been passed, which means Alfie is breaking the law by sheltering Eric.

Can he keep his new friend safe - and himself out of trouble?

A funny and heartwarming adventure about two best friends helping put themselves back together, from the award-winning Frank Cottrell-Boyce.
