What did you like about the book:   Another zany adventure from Quix Fast-Fun-Reads is Geeger The Robot:Lost and Found with black and white lively illustrations.  Geeger is a very, very hungry robot.  Fudge is a hamster and the class pet in Ms. Bork’s class at Amblerville Elementary School.   Geeger and Fudge both love eating gushy mushy bananas.  One day at school Fudge is nowhere to be found.  All the kids in class are thinking Geeger ate him since he was the last one seen with him.  Tillie was Geeger’s first new friend when he came to school and she did not think he ate Fudge.  She stood up for Geeger and told everyone that it was not him and helped to figure out where Fudge was.

The Aladdin Quix series is a fast, fun read for elementary students with colorful characters, lots of humor, easy to follow action and an entertaining storyline.  At the front of the book, there is a ‘cast of characters’ page and ‘table of contents’.  The back pages include ‘word lists’ and ‘about the book questions’.   Other features you will find are:  short chapters, short paragraphs, and large font.

Anything you didn’t like about it? No

To whom would you recommend this book?  A fun early reader for emerging and reluctant readers, especially those who are fans of My Weird School.

Who should buy this book?  elementary schools, home and public libraries

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles?  no
