Author(s): Joy Cowley
Robby the Robot has lost his toe and none of the shops are selling toes for such an old model. But when Robby moves his search to the nearby dump, he finds something even better. At the dump, Robby meets Hoot - a small blue car destined for the crusher. Together they must escape the terrible security droids... before they both end up as scrap! A delightful tale from much-loved children's author Joy Cowley, with illustrations by Phillip Fickling.
