Many thanks to the publisher and Ben for letting me be part of the blog tour!

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.

One day, in a future not too far removed from the present, Ben finds an unusual object in his garden. He refuses to throw it away as his wife Amy advises, so he decides to keep him. His name is Tang. It is only when Amy walks out that Ben realises that his only friend is this little robot, but not for long. Tang soon will stop fuctioning and Ben must fix him. Will he succeed?

Initial thoughts:
1. How could I not love Tang? This robot is so cute and adorable and I wanted to hug him. As for Ben, he’s likeable and it was great to read about how he changed through the novel. I loved their relationship and the way Ben treated the robot, almost like his child.
2. I enjoyed the dialogues and the humorous incidents. Basically, these are some of the things that make this story so heart-warming and funny.
3. This book should be a movie, because it could turn out better than Wall-e. No, I’m not kidding.
4. The writing is simple and the plot direct and I have to say that I liked the ending, even though I wanted something else. I laughed and cried and when I finished it, I felt the need to read the story of Ben and Tang all over again.

If you’re a fan of Wall-e, then you’ll absolutely love this robot. This story is touching and well told, concentrating on the relationship between a man and a robot. It’s unique and so heart-warming!
