The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess

A whimsical modern fairy tale from internationally renowned cartoonist, Tom Gauld. When the log princess goes missing, her brother, the little wooden robot, sets out on an epic adventure to find her. He will encounter goblins, magic puddings, a mushroom queen and a very intimidating wood pile as he seeks to bring his sister home.

The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess is an exquisitely illustrated modern fairytale about sibling love. Tom Gauld brings all of his wit, draghtsmanship and narrative craft to a funny, moving tale that proves that woodlice can be heroes too. The Irish Times review: “The narrative is full of surprises […] but it is Gauld’s detailed, textured illustrations that will draw a young reader’s attention back to this wonderful book again and again.”

    The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess. Acclaimed graphic novelist Tom Gauld’s first picture book for children. If you’re a fan of Tom Gauld’s cartoons in the Guardian and New Yorker, you will love this, and children will too, I suppose you will have to share. The layout is unusual for a picture book, which is part of its charm, more like a graphic novel, with lots of detail and pictures within pictures. A different take on traditional fairy tales, with the hero and heroine (who are siblings) rescuing each other in turn, and then being rescued themselves. It could have all gone horribly wrong in several places, but it is OK IN THE END. Love it.
