What does amputation mean for a robot? If robots dream of electric sheep, do they also experience PTSD and suffer the pain of phantom limbs? Luckily, for children, Chihiro Takeuchi asks and answers none of those questions in her light-spirited book, Can You Find My Robot’s Arm? Instead, a robot loses his arm and his small robot buddy tries to help him find a replacement.
I really like the artwork in this book. Everything is a silhouette. I’m not sure if it’s cut paper or drawn, but it’s cool. I’ll share a few more images that I enjoyed from the book.
If you like robots, have tiny humans that enjoy books, and you like the cool artwork and it’s fun negative space, check out Can You Find My Robot’s Arm.
