Phone-y Friends Nancy Krulik, Amanda Burwasser, Mike Moran
Logan auditions for the school play and is chosen for a part in the chorus, but unfortunately, Java, Logan's robot cousin, doesn't get a part, which means he and Logan won't be hanging out together every day after school. Logan's excited to have something to himself and starts spending more and more time with his new friends.

Now with so much time on his hands, Java attempts to mimic human behavior
by developing a friendship of his own. He tries to befriend several
household appliances to no avail. (A washing machine can't make interesting conversation and the coffee maker just seems to spit water in response.)

Finally, he becomes chummy with the voice activated program on Mrs. Applebaum's cell phone.

But then what look like prank phone calls land Mrs. Applebaum in hot water with her boss and the neighbors.

In the end, Logan freezes and forgets his lines, and Java (who has memorized them in an instant) feeds them to him the Cyrano-style. After all, that's what friends are for.

Internationally bestselling author Nancy Krulik and her incredibly talented daughter, Amanda Burwasser, spin hilarious high jinks in the fourth book in the Project Droid series, which combines the literalness of Amelia Bedelia with a wacky modern edge, making for hours of laughter. And the fun continues with an activity in the back!

Praise for the Project Droid series:

"This quirky new chapter book series is fast-paced and full of Amelia Bedelia–style gags. Moran’s black-and-white cartoon drawings add to the humor and appeal. Java is an endearingly naive and enthusiastic character, and Logan is believable as a frustrated kid trying to keep his cousin’s robot nature a secret. VERDICT This entertaining new series will appeal to fans of funny stories and robots." —School Library Journal

[F]unny enough to keep fledgling readers turning pages." —Kirkus Reviews on Science No Fair!
