Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5–In this story based on a Jewish legend about a man made of clay built to protect the Jews from getting killed several hundred years ago, Timothy creates a Golem out of his science-fair robot to protect himself and his friend, Arnie, from a group of bullies. A few computer commands saved on a disk do the trick. "Joe" is full of surprises, from mowing the neighborhood's lawns to sending bullies flying through the air. Unfortunately, it's suddenly Golem meets Frankenstein as Joe gets out of control, which includes mistakenly tying up the teacher. While many children will be intrigued by a mechanical figure that comes to life, it may be asking too much to suspend disbelief over the fact that the robot was fairly easy to create by a fourth grader, and that it fooled adults into thinking it was a real person. Expressions such as "Holy Hanukkah" and "Perilous Passover" sound campy and might be lost on readers who are unfamiliar with the Jewish terms. A couple of books that explain the legend are included in an endnote.– Kelly Czarnecki, Bloomington Public Library, IL

HASH(0x9f4e1204) out of 5 stars A great story with a lesson for the young ones... May 7 2013
By Gaston Sanders - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this little story book for my two grandnephews and grandnieces to read. I have read it with them and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The lesson of how to deal with bullies is very important for children and the author did a fantastic job of letting the young people know. We loved reading this book. I highly recommend this book to all parents who are looking for something with a lesson about manners and bullying.

I chose this rating because my son loved it. The story was enjoyable and funny. Apart from that children can learn a great deal just by reading the story. I recommend this book for young readers and teenagers.
