So naturally, when I first started writing books for kids, one of my earliest manuscripts was a rhyming robot picture book. Five years later, Bitty Bot (gloriously illustrated by Tad Carpenter) will be published by Simon & Schuster / Paula Wiseman Books in October 2016. Two other robot books for kids are coming out this year as well. Peter Brown's middle grade novel, The Wild Robot, releases in April, and Miranda Paul's Trainbots, with illustrations by Shane McG releases in June.
