Book 294: Rusty, the Robot's Holiday Adventures

Rusty, the Robot's Holiday Adventures, by Sherry Decker and Michael McCarty, Pie Plate Publishing, 2010.

It took me about one story to fully warm up to Rusty, the Robot, but once I did, I pretty much fell in love with him.

The story is set in the future, but kind of an anti-Jetson future:  People still live on the Earth's surface, dress and speak about the same as we do, and robots are antique oddities, so sometimes that was a bit jarring for me as an adult reader with preformed notions about the future.  Rusty, however, is absolutely charming, from beginning to end.
