Summary

I’m Not a Robot! I’m Tom!

What is that strange green mark on Tom’s leg? Why is he beginning to feel different and why are his legs starting to tingle? Could it really be that Tom is a robot?  

Facing challenges is a natural part of growing up and going to school. Just like all children, Tom in this story must learn to be brave and strong.

After returning from Robot Island, the green mark on Tom’s leg is growing, and so, too, is his strength. His clothes are becoming tighter and he’s acquired amazing talents that he never had before.

What is happening to him? He’s just a little boy but he has the strength and brain power of a Robot. How can this be?

This, the second book in the series, was written by Ann Twigg. Ann wrote this story after her grandson Tom, who was obsessed by robots, asked for an exciting robot story. In this brilliantly written story for kids, Tom has to hide himself at school, before anyone notices he is changing into a robot.

Many children find themselves in similar situations at school when they are shy, frightened, or just unsure about what other children will think if they are somehow different.

This fantastic audiobook will have your child hooked from the outset.

Another good book for children from Ann

We’ve listened to a number of Ann’s books and my little one likes them a lot. She reads at a slow pace, but keeps the tension and the interest. I found out that Ann used to be a dinner lady at an infant school and used to tell these stories to the kids at lunchtime. Kind of refreshing in a way to have stories that are not tainted with a lot of the preachy, politically correct stuff that you find in lots of audiobooks these days. Just plain good fun for kids.

A book for kids who like robots

'I’m Not a Robot! I’m Tom!" This is a nice listen for younger children. Ann Twigg gives a great lesson on how to be strong, brave, and superpower full like his book's superhero TOM. A lovely bedtime story for my grandson! He is just starting to listen and he was able to get through them with a little help.

Tom and all his crazy adventures

A story looking at what it means to be human and the role of technology in our lives! Well written and narrated, it’s an enjoyable listen for younger children. I got this to for my 5 years old who loves anything to do with robots. In this case, something is different! I’ve also got some of the other books from the same author.

Great Books for kids

My boy’s a great fan of Tom! I love the original storyline, which was a nice change from many politically correct stories. These bedtime stories are perfect for my youngsters! He is just starting to read and he was able to get through them with a little help. They are a perfect length, too, not too long so they keep his attention. This book has prompted a change in our nighttime routine.

Very imaginative

My four year old daughter enjoys this. She struggled to understand it when she first heard it a year ago, but has got really in to it recently. It's an imaginative story with lots of laughs for kids

Beware Robot Island!

Tom has been on holiday to Robot Island but whilst he was there, he had an unfortunate accident and now strange things have started to happen to him. He can throw a ball very, very far, remember every word his teacher has said to him and even read people's minds! Tom is slowly turning into a robot! An imaginative story perfect for young families.

Daughter loves this

My daughter loved this story and said she would give it 5 out of 5. It is longer than other stories we have listened to by Ann Twigg but my daughter was happy to listen for the longer time. The characters are well written and good fun. We listened to it on 1.5 speed as we found speed 1 a little too slow. My daughter would listen to this again and gave it a big thumbs up!

Sequel to Tom on Robot Island

This was our favourite narrative of Ann Twigg’s yet. We enjoyed reading the previous story, so it was nice to continue hearing about Tom’s return from holiday. Tom experiences both benefits and disadvantages to having super human powers. He is able to defend his friend but it also upsets his friend too, unintentionally. Then his power becomes too much in an ordinary school setting, especially when he begins to transforming in to a Robot.
Without spoiling the ending, it ends appropriately and my children were surprised but pleased. They loved the idea of having super strength and continued to chat about it even after the narrative had finished.

A great realistic read!

Mind-blowing

I can remember when I was child, I was very fond of any robot. I read everything about robot. I was trying to make robot by paper, wood, stick or anything. Now, I noticed that my child Noah also have same mentality. So that, both me and my child listen Ann Twigg's audiobook. We are very pleased.
