Author note

David Orme has written over 200 books including poetry collections, fiction and non-fiction, and school text books, as well as Ransom's popular Trailblazers series. When he is not writing books he travels around the country giving performances, running writing workshops and running courses.


What are robots? Where can you find them? What do they do? What do they look like? It's all in here. Then read a story about a robot that starts to take control of the home - and invites its friends around as well.

This fun non-fiction reading book, with exciting colour photos and illustrations, will appeal to all older struggling readers. It focuses on a popular topic to provide interest for an older age range and, as part of one of the higher sets of the Thunderbolts series, will engage struggling readers and promote further progression. As with all Thunderbolts titles, the book includes a non-fiction section and a fiction story.
