Alfie is off school after an accident in which he lost both his hand and his confidence. He’s lonely all day on his own. So when he
comes across Eric, a one-legged robot in need of a friend, he brings him home with him.

But a ban on humanoid robots has just been passed, which means Alfie is breaking the law by sheltering Eric.

Can he keep his new friend safe – and himself out of trouble?

A funny and heartwarming adventure about two best friends helping put themselves back together, from the award-winning Frank Cottrell-Boyce.

Runaway Robot is nominated in the CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Children’s Book Awards.
