Product description

Product Description

From bestselling author Jill Williamson and her son Luke, comes RoboTales, a science fiction fairytale series for kids ages 7 - 13 or in grades 2nd - 8th.

Praise for Tinker…
“An excellent twist of a classic fairy tale, Robo Tales: Tinker is bound to be a new “classic tale”! Boy- friendly! Girl-friendly! Kid-friendly! Anyone-friendly (in my opinion). This story was a hit for our family. I read it in one sitting to my 8, 10, 12, and 13 year olds, all of whom were thrilled with the creative storyline, the gadgets and adventure, and the unique illustrations created by children who read it before publishing. It is a story of friendship, kindness, perseverance, and resilience in the face of challenging circumstances. We anxiously await the next book!”
-CC, Amazon Reviewer

“I read this book with my daughters. My 11 year old finished it on her own. My 9 year old got caught up in reading it that she forgot to stop reading when it was my turn. (We take turns reading out loud). The characters are great- from Tinker to Robo to the evil step-brothers, to helpful Mr. Monn. It’s nice to see Cinderella spun in a boy-friendly fashion that isn’t ultimately about romance. This is a great book that both boy and girl readers will enjoy. Fun but short for the older kids, just right for the reluctant middle-grade (3-5th grade) reader.”
-Toothless in Texaz, Amazon Reviewer

“Though I am not a kid, I really enjoyed Tinker…this Cinderella style under-dog story had me from the start. It is well thought out with characters you can relate to. It is a fun read for kids and adults alike. Jill Williamson has created another great series with the help of her son Luke, what a great duo! My kids and I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series! 5 Stars!”
-Fire Dad^6, Amazon Reviewer

Tinker has always dreamed of attending the Invention Institute where his late father was a teacher. When the school hosts the Recycle Race competition to choose a new apprentice, not only does Tinker hope to win a full scholarship, he believes the Institute can teach him how to fix his robot dog. Tinker must protect his invention from his uncle and cousins, who do everything they can to destroy Tinker’s dream.

If you enjoyed “Tinker,” you’ll love book two, “Mardok and the Seven Exiles!”
