For my birthday I got a three-month subscription to Owl Crate Jr. from my “Aunt” Madeline. Once a month I get a couple books and some activities that go along with a theme in the mail. October’s theme was robots, and one of the books I got is COG.
COG is short for cognitive development. Cognitive development is the learning process. COG is a robot who looks just like a normal twelve year old. He lives with a woman named Gina. One day COG is hit by a car, and Gina is taken away from him. COG is moved to the uniMIND headquarters where they try to remove his brain. COG escapes with Trashbot, Proto, Ada, and Car. The problem is: uniMIND is looking for them; their faces are on wanted posters all over the U.S.A.; Ada and Cog have to go to the bathroom and eat; they have no money, and Car does not have any weapons. Will uniMIND capture them?
One of my favorite characters is Ada. She is COG’s sister, and she is also a robot. Ada can be used as a weapon. She has missiles and is very good at fighting. She also has attitude.
This book is for fourth- seventh grade.
I give this book 5 out of 5 bookworms.
