Bitty Bot's Big Beach Getaway

(4) PS Illustrated by Tad Carpenter. In this second Bitty Bot outing, a bored, uncomfortable Bitty Bot finds fun at the beach, creating and testing a submarine with new friends. The rhyme's succinctness evokes Anna Dewdney's Llama Llama books, and the robots similarly represent children, though their vessel failing seems at odds with the book's cheerful vibe. Blocky digital illustrations shift from warm sands to cool undersea tones, heightening the adventure.
