Description

In this universal story of friendship, loss, and redemption, a dog and a robot become friends. But their days of friendship are numbered. This moving, charming graphic novel about a dog and a robot shows us in poignant detail how powerful and fragile relationships are. After a Labor Day jaunt to the beach leaves the robot rusted, immobilized in the sand, the dog must return alone to the life they shared. But the memory of their friendship lingers, and as the seasons pass, the dog tries to fill the emotional void left by the loss of his closest friend, making and losing a series of friends, from a melting snowman to epicurean anteaters. But for the robot, lying rusting on the beach, the only relief from loneliness is in dreams. This new paperback edition of Robot Dreams by Sara Varon includes new backmatter, including a Q&A with the author, behind-the-scenes sketches, and more.
