The Runaway Robot: A DJ Benson Adventure

97 pages1 hour


DJ Benson is a 12-year-old boy who lives on a farm in the Australian countryside. He loves all things scientific. In the new book The Runaway Robot: A DJ Benson Adventure, DJ’s family has just inherited a robot factory from Uncle Clive.

It turns out that Uncle Clive didn’t pass away, but faked his demise so he could retire from the city and live next door to the Benson’s farm. One day, DJ’s father asks the factory to design and build a robot to help back at the farm. But before the robot can be delivered, it is stolen! DJ turns to Uncle Clive, who suggests that the family order another robot. DJ asks Becky Martin, his best friend, to help him assemble the new robot, but the second one is stolen, too! DJ believes that Becky’s father, who owns the local computer store, has taken both robots. DJ confronts Mr. Martin, who denies the charge.

Nothing is certain in this rollicking adventure story. Is this a case of a Runaway Robot or will the robots be returned? Can DJ save the day?
