Meet Cog: your typical curious young boy...who just happens to be a robot.  After an accident, he wakes up in an unfamiliar lab surrounded by unfamiliar faces.  His creator, Gina, has gone missing, and Cog takes it upon himself to find her.  But he’s not alone; long-lost sister Ada, Trashbot, Proto, and Car come to his aid, all while being hunted down by an evil corporation that desperately wants the cutting-edge X-Module in his head.  Cog will go through more “cognitive development” than he ever has before as he discovers the power of choice on the road trip of a lifetime.  Told with humor and heart, this is a tale that will keep you cheesing until the very end — and you might even learn a thing or two about platypuses along the way.

“Since its creation date some months before, android Cog, designed for realistic human cognition, has lived happily with Gina in a house in the suburbs. When a misunderstanding sends Cog to a new ‘home’ at the headquarters of the tech firm that funded its creation, Cog makes friends with a talking car, a trash-bot, a robo-dog, and a sibling. Cog quickly gets to the heart of artificial intelligence, morality, and a road-trip adventure. This will engage young readers at once and inspire them to question assumptions about appearances, the law, and family.”
