Clink "manufactured" by Kelly DiPucchio and Matthew Myers
"Clink was a state-of-the-art robot with the dazzling ability to make toast and play music at the same time..." Everyone would want their own Clink....years ago. Now Clink sits on the shelf of the store. Noone wanted a rusty old robot. They wanted a snazzier, newer robot that could do homework and make chocolate chip cookies or a robot with retractable arms or fancy attachments. Clink watched as one by one, his friends went home. Then one day a young boy came in the store, like he had many times before, but this time he wanted a to buy a robot. He selected Clink, despite the store owner's disapproval, and took him home because according to the boy, Clink was "perfect". A great story for boys who love robots, as mine does. Hidden in the story about Clink, is a great story for all kids about seeing the good in others and giving others a chance.
