Novo the Space Robot - How to Solve the Mystery of Crying
by Charly Froh, Zuzana Svobodová (Illustrator)
Greetings, Earthling! It’s me, Novo, the space robot from the planet Infinita. One day, a super space storm destroyed my bright purple garden. All my hard work was puff-puff gone. It was a nightmare! And liquid just kept on drip-drop dripping out of my laser-eyes. I worried I was going to rust. But no-bot-ty knew how to make the liquid stop. So I swooshed to Earth, hoping to solve this complete mystery. Are you ready, Earthling? Let’s go on an adventure across the universe!
Join Novo in this heartwarming story as he discovers the tears we make and how they can help us heal.
First, the illustrations are fantastic. Some of the best you will see in children’s books. My kids absolutely loved the way everything looked which made the book that much more interesting to them. After the storm destroys Novo’s garden, he begins to water out of his eyes and he fears that he will rust. Not knowing why this is happening he travels to earth in hopes that earthlings can help him solve the mystery. There he learns about different emotions and reasons why people cry. He learns that he was feeling sad and that crying was actually like a magical medicine. They made him so much stronger! I love how the book encourages the idea of crying and talking through your emotions. It’s great for your children’s mental health to learn this at an early age.
