It all started with a silly mischief between a boy and a girl. Mick and Savannah go to school together. Savannah is fairly new to the neighbourhood, and Mick doesn't like the attention his younger brother Finley gives to this new girl. It's all kids' problems, naive and harmless, until one night Mick's neighbourhood gets attacked by none other than a robot! A real robot! And not just one robot! An army of killer robots whose primary goal is to destroy Mick and all he cares about! Okay, to scare him to death rather than to destroy him, but you get my drift. After Finley's disappearance, all bets are off and Mick, Savannah, and other kids from school join forces to save him, and the neighbourhood, from this monstrous threat.
It was such an immersive experience to read Mick Bogerman's adventurous book, interestingly titled How to Destroy the New Girl's Killer Robot Army, subtitled Slug Pie Story #3, as we find out while reading that this is not the first supernatural sci-fi adventure Mick and his brother Finley are going through. The style of writing in Bogerman's tale fits the overall atmosphere in the book, and the childish, but really clever humour takes readers back into their own childhood, bringing up memories from long ago, running down Memory Lane...not walking, because the described killer robots are really scary!
The formatting and the overall appearance of the book add to the whole impression of reading an extensive guide on the topic, with tips and a list in the end to help you prepare for the next possible killer robot army invasion in your own neighbourhood. Thoroughly fun and exciting, full of action and suspense, and an educational angle for the targeted audience, this book leads the reader through a life lesson of what happens when one starts bullying at school, the consequences of one's actions, forgiveness, and the creation of true and long lasting friendship.
