Hey guys, there’s a cool book out. It’s called D-Bot Squad. 
Marlo, 6

It made me feel amazing about reading, because that’s the first whole chapter book I’ve ever read.
Olivia, 6

I really, really, really want to read the other books.
Livian, 9

This book was AWESOME. It made me feel excited about reading.
Xavier, 6

Both my boys love dinosaurs and D-Bot Squad got them thinking and chatting about creating their own dinosaur. Compared to other books Xavier has read D-Bot Squad was much more involved – the boys were really caught up and we talking about the book, rather than just listening to the story.
Katrina, Xavier’s Mum

I like the size of the words and it has punctuation.
