A Robot Squashed My Teacher is the laugh-out-loud, wacky adventure by Pooja Puri brilliantly illustrated by Allen Fatimaharan, the sequel to the Marcus Rashford Bookclub Selected book A Dinosaur Ate My Sister.
Esha Verma and her snotty apprentice Broccoli have a dream. They are going to win the legendary Brain Trophy – the ultimate inventing prize. This year’s entry: The RoarEasy – a gadget that lets the user speak to animals.
But when Esha’s arch-nemesis, fellow inventor Ernie, lands her in detention, the RoarEasy malfunctions and suddenly Monsieur Crépeau is TRANSFORMED INTO A PIGEON.
She, Broccoli, Archibald and Monsieur Crépeau will have to go undercover and break into the Central Research Laboratories to repair her invention before the competition and return Monsieur Crépeau to his human form. Ernie is determined to foil their plans as they face giant robots, killer plants, shrinking machines, robo-spiders, clouds that make you float and terrifying twisters.
Before you start reading, there are a few things you should know:
- I, Esha Verma, am a genius inventor extraordinaire.
- I like lists.
- I did not mean to turn my teacher into a pigeon. Some things just can’t be helped.
