Robot Dreams by Sara Varon

First Second, New York & London, 2007

Another wonderful book published by First Second, this wordless graphic novel is all about friendship, loss and redemption.  Robot Dreams is beautifully colored in soft muted tones.

We follow this story through a year, watching the seasons change month to month.  The story starts with Dog putting together a “build it yourself” robot.  They watch movies, eat popcorn and spend time together.  Due to a foolish mistake they become separated.  We follow both their thoughts and dreams through the round of the year and finally to a  bittersweet resolution.  This is a  lovely tale.

    This looks like a really sweet book, I’ll have to keep an eye out for it. Is it intended for children, or adults?

    Unfortunately not book or blog related, but I read your “A bit” page and was thrilled to see that you live in Seattle as I’m moving there in the beginning of October. If you have any fun Seattle blogs, Seattle bookstores, or Seattle whatever to recommend I would love to hear about them. :)
