My Robot Ate My Homework

“I am sticking to my word,” Java said. “The word on this card is absorb. It means to
soak up.” I shook my head. “That's not what it means,” I told him. “I know I am
correct, Logan,” Java said. “My database has a state-of-the-art dictionary. Absorb

Logan better study up on his geography facts so he doesn’t flunk out! Third-grader Logan Applebaum has the perfect solution to finding time for all that pesky homework—just have his cousin, Java, do it for him. With a robot cousin, Logan’s pretty much guaranteed straight As. But when Mrs. Perriwinkle announces that the class will have a geography bee, Logan realizes that if he doesn’t want to be exposed as a cheater, he’s going to have to hit the books and fill his own hard drive with facts. The competition’s going to be tough. And the more time he spends studying, the more he wants to show what he’s learned. Can Logan out-smart the mega mean Silverspoon twins who win at everything and a cousin who’s a super computer to come out on top as the geography king? Internationally bestselling author Nancy Krulik and her incredibly talented daughter, Amanda Burwasser spin hilarious high jinks in the third book in the Project Droid series, which combines the literalness of Amelia Bedelia with a wacky modern edge, making for hours of laughter. And the fun continues with an activity in the back!

Daniel D. Drek thought he'd seen the last of a certain stinky robot. Then one day, while walking his dog, a familiar passing of gas followed by a tinny voice catches his attention. "Oh no, Milo!" He watches helplessly as his dog collapses and begins to whimper. "What's wrong, boy?" he pets him, fighting back tears. When Daniel notices two glowing eyes illuminating from Milo's stomach, he realizes that one way or another the half-digested robot must come out. But at what cost? Intended for children 9 to 12.

The bold and boundlessly original debut novel from the Oscar®-winning screenwriter of Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Synecdoche, New York. LONGLISTED FOR THE CENTER FOR FICTION FIRST NOVEL PRIZE • “A dyspeptic satire that owes much to Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon . . . propelled by Kaufman’s deep imagination, considerable writing ability and bull’s-eye wit."—The Washington Post “An astonishing creation . . . riotously funny . . . an exceptionally good [book].”—The New York Times Book Review • “Kaufman is a master of language . . . a sight to behold.”—NPR NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR AND MEN’S HEALTH B. Rosenberger Rosenberg, neurotic and underappreciated film critic (failed academic, filmmaker, paramour, shoe salesman who sleeps in a sock drawer), stumbles upon a hitherto unseen film made by an enigmatic outsider—a film he’s convinced will change his career trajectory and rock the world of cinema to its core. His hands on what is possibly the greatest movie ever made—a three-month-long stop-motion masterpiece that took its reclusive auteur ninety years to complete—B. knows that it is his mission to show it to the rest of humanity. The only problem: The film is destroyed, leaving him the sole witness to its inadvertently ephemeral genius. All that’s left of this work of art is a single frame from which B. must somehow attempt to recall the film that just might be the last great hope of civilization. Thus begins a mind-boggling journey through the hilarious nightmarescape of a psyche as lushly Kafkaesque as it is atrophied by the relentless spew of Twitter. Desperate to impose order on an increasingly nonsensical existence, trapped in a self-imposed prison of aspirational victimhood and degeneratively inclusive language, B. scrambles to re-create the lost masterwork while attempting to keep pace with an ever-fracturing culture of “likes” and arbitrary denunciations that are simultaneously his bête noire and his raison d’être. A searing indictment of the modern world, Antkind is a richly layered meditation on art, time, memory, identity, comedy, and the very nature of existence itself—the grain of truth at the heart of every joke.

How do goals of education and entertainment conflict in popularizations of science? In schools? "Robot World" explores these questions through a case study of a hands-on science museum/theme park in a tourist center in the upper Midwestern United States. Mixing ethnography, autobiography, and science fiction, this book examines science's public cultures. In unraveling this dual interest of education and entertainment, it looks at how the association of wonder and science works ideologically. It explores how the technologies in the museum become props in specific racial and gender identity formations, and it examines the experiences of the body in the hands-on museum as the ultimate science lesson.
