Oliver reading-Honest Mum

We were recently asked to review Bing & Nero: Boy + Robot=Fun and it was a joy from start to finish. Bursting with vibrant and captivating illustrations by Inci Aler, this picture book felt cinematic, the story draws you in with the imagery breathing life into the wonderfully, fun and colourful world created by author Ingrid Williams.

The author allows the images to tell the story as much as the prose, to fill in the intention gaps (it is that which makes it so filmic), and it’s rare to find such an economically written, smart book for kids aged 3-5!

When young boy Bing is refused a dog, he decides to take matters into his own hands and makes himself a friend-a robotic friend from household junk. Nero is one smiley metallic wonder we could all do with in our lives and he makes great popcorn too!

From the moment he’s switched on, the house is filled with fun and adventure. This book is a celebration of friendship and a lesson to kids to let their imaginations go wild and create their own adventures! We loved it!

What’s more you can even get a film introduction to the characters here:

    I’m a bit obsessed with kids books and always looking for new recommendations. This sounds fun and love the fact that the boy uses his imagination to find an alternative to a dog.
