Sir_Scrap Metal is a children's adventure book written by Joan Dee Wilson. Eight-year-old Dree and her brothers, Mike and Brady, are in Lake Superior to spend the summer with their grandma in Cedar Cottage. While Mike and Brady visit Mr. Fitch's store to buy a drone, Dree sets out to explore by herself and chances upon two kittens, whom she names Lex and Poopsie. Meanwhile, the boys get their hands on a seemingly useless robot. They name it Sir Scrap Metal. Unbeknownst to them, Sir is an advanced robot that switches on after being exposed to sunlight due to its solar-powered battery. They are soon visited by Sir's creator, Mr. Rouso, who retrieves classified information from its Black Box. When Dree's kittens go missing, Sir helps them upgrade their drone to aid in their search.
If you're a fan of movies such as WALL-E, you're going to love Sir_Scrap Metal. Author Joan Dee Wilson masterfully captures children's adventurous spirit and crafts an entertaining yarn that a young reader is bound to enjoy. The plot moves quickly, the story world is remarkably imaginative, and you can't help immersing yourselves in the story. The characters are colorful and wildly entertaining. All of the characters -- Dree, Mike, Brady, Sir, Grandma, and even the kittens -- bring a unique flavor to the narrative, making it all the more compelling. My personal favorite characters were Dree, Sir, and the kittens. I enjoyed reading Sir_Scrap Metal, and I highly recommend it to kids of all ages.
