Robotslayer is a book created by Vincent Kamp for his own two young boys – Leo and Benny – and it’s taken 4 years from idea to release. The book is suitable for ages 5 onwards. It was released on October 2013. It is a paperback containing about 60 pages. The font is small and all in capital letters. Each page is drawn with great illustrated.
This graphic novel is about Leo, a boy who lives in a city ruled by renegade robots. Most of the humans have left and the city lies in ruins. One day, his brother Benny is captured by the evil Dr. Grububble and Leo realizes that it is up to him to stop the robots. He has to put on the special robot suit his Grandfather designed for him so that he can become the Robotslayer.
My husband read the book with Mr K, 6 years old. They both loved reading it. The story is very engaging and exciting and the graphics are captivating. Mr K now wants to be Leo the hero to save the world! I would definitely recommend it and it will appeal to any child or even adult who loves a bit of sci-fi action!
