Woman's Way

Robots Don’t Cry is about peer-group pressure and friendship, but there is also a lot more going on in this surprisingly sophisticated story . . . In this story, not only does Bimbot have to learn about friendship, but along the way also has to deal with fear of the unknown, lack of self-confidence, give and take and the good feeling you get in helping others. In fact most of the emotions experienced at some stage by your average 6-8 year old. However, far from being some sort of do-good treatise, the author has cleverly packed all the subliminal messages into a jolly good read.
