    Cats vs. Robots -- This Is War is a delightful and entertaining read. It's the first book in a new children's book series by Margaret Stohl and Lewis Peterson. The story centers around two galactic empires that consist of seemingly polar opposites -- the Robots, or "Binars," obsessed with order and rules, and the Cats, for whom rules are "generally meant to be followed--but only if you felt like it." These civilizations' epic battle is now coming to Earth, where humans have invented a "Singularity Cats vs. Robots -- This Is War is a delightful and entertaining read. It's the first book in a new children's book series by Margaret Stohl and Lewis Peterson. The story centers around two galactic empires that consist of seemingly polar opposites -- the Robots, or "Binars," obsessed with order and rules, and the Cats, for whom rules are "generally meant to be followed--but only if you felt like it." These civilizations' epic battle is now coming to Earth, where humans have invented a "Singularity Chip" that can enable cats to live past their nine lives or grant robots eternal battery life. Each side is determined that the chip must not fall into the enemy's paws -- or grasping appendages. As the winner of a #GoodreadsGiveaway, I received an advanced reader's copy of this thoroughly engaging book. From start to finish, I found so much to enjoy and appreciate. To begin with, the book encourages readers to move beyond "binary" thinking, of believing that something has to be all of one thing or all of something else. Girl or Boy. Cat or Robot. Organized or Chaotic. However you delineate things that you believe to be complete opposites. In earlier comments, I mentioned the book incorporating Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics -- abbreviated in education communities as STEM (or, as I prefer it, STEAM, which also encompasses Arts). Well, robotics, coding, computer programming, are all integral to this story. But one other area where I feel that readers may benefit is in emotional literacy ... to an ability to identify your feelings. Two human twins, Min and Max, experience a range of emotions as they interact with two mischievous kittens and an older cat whose health is failing. My thanks to everyone involved in this book's creation for the chance to read this advance copy. This book would be a great addition to the children's collection in a library. -- Cynthia M. Parkhill, June 26, 2018 ******** Learned this morning in an email that I'd won a #GoodreadsGiveaway of 's Cats vs. Robots. My initial impression of this book, when I enrolled in the giveaway, was that it combined my favorite animal, the cat, with an application of STEAM principles (That's Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. As I understand it, educators incorporate STEAM in education to prepare children to live and work in an increasingly technological society.) Well, my intention with any children's book giveaway that I won was to place the book, once I'd read it, into my school library. And for its emphasis on STEAM, plus seeming a really fun read, I thought this book would be an especially good fit. I'm looking forward to receiving this book and, most especially, to reading it. -- Cynthia M. Parkhill, June 9, 2018

    I received an Advance Reader's Edition of the book from the publisher in a contest. Cats Vs. Robots: This is War is the first book in a series. Marketing has been pushing how this book relates to STEM (my preference is STEAM-don't forget the "A" for the Arts) and incorporates concepts related to binary and non-binary thought. With binary, it is yes and no, black and white, girl or boy, etc. We have that duality throughout the book. First with the cats and robots themselves. The Great Feline Empire I received an Advance Reader's Edition of the book from the publisher in a contest. Cats Vs. Robots: This is War is the first book in a series. Marketing has been pushing how this book relates to STEM (my preference is STEAM-don't forget the "A" for the Arts) and incorporates concepts related to binary and non-binary thought. With binary, it is yes and no, black and white, girl or boy, etc. We have that duality throughout the book. First with the cats and robots themselves. The Great Feline Empire of cats is very lazy and unorganized while the Robotic Federation is highly organized and hates the chaos inducing cats. There is also a pair of human twins, a boy named Max and a girl named Min and yes even their names are opposites. The twins are opposites too with Max preferring video games, being lazy, and cats and Min being into robots, order, and loving school. We also have a few different characters who challenge this binary thinking. Pounce of the Feline Empire is a very organized cat who is thinking big picture when the rest of his kind can't think beyond their next nap. Min and Max's cousin Javi is another character that challenges the binary thinking of "him" and "her" by preferring the pronouns "they" and "them". The STEM comes in with Min and her robotics completion and Max and his video game level building contest. Min and Max's parents are also inventors, engineers, and scientists so their work on a special microchip that may be able to extend cat's lives and the battery life of robots becomes the conflict point for the Cats and Robots. Overall, I went into this book thinking it was going to be more about the cats and robots than it was. Most of the book is Min and Max becoming involved in this intergalactic feud. There is also a lot of characters to get use to as well. Javi's preferred pronouns can take a little getting use to especially if you have not met many people who are non-binary but eventually they grew on me. Just a heads up to my fellow librarians, this may be a book an unsuspecting parent may take offense to because of Javi but that's just me being overly cautious. This entire book actually grew on me especially as I took the time to think over it after I was done reading it. It even went from a 3 to a 4 star rating while I was writing this. Not as goofy as it first appears, Cats vs. Robots #1: This is War takes STEM concepts and makes them interesting with a multi-character story line and a lot of heart.

    It's all in the title, exactly what it sounds like and more. There has been a war between the Feline Empire and Robot Federation for millennia. Both forces learn that a chip on planet Earth has been invented that has the power to either prolong a cat's nine lives, or give robots the power of an eternal battery. This adventure-packed novel will have you laughing at the cat traits we all know so well, as well as pondering how human robots are capable of being.

    Fun story that has multiple view points, humor, potty jokes, and some STEAM concepts thrown in for good measure. This is the first is as series and I think it will appeal to many of my students. DRC from Edelweiss and Harper Collins

    I hoped for a lot more from this book. The writing drove me crazy, and all the different perspectives were very hard to follow.

    A really cute chapter book. I'd pick up the second one if it was already written.
