Meet Norby—he wants to help, but he's one mixed-up robot! When Space Academy cadet Jeff Wells needs tutoring for his course in Martian Swahili, he goes looking for a robot teacher. Norby possesses not only the usual robot skills but also an extraordinary array of powers, including antigravity and hyperspace capabilities. He's just a little fuzzy on how to use his gifts! Together, the boy and the robot must figure out a way to foil a sinister plot involving Ing the Ingrate, would-be Emperor of the Universe.
The first book of The Norby Chronicles,
this novel was written by Janet Asimov and her husband, Isaac Asimov—the author of I, Robot
and many other robot stories. It's a great way to introduce young readers to the thrills of science fiction.
