Join a Young Boy in His Fantastical Adventure

Andy Buckram has many uses for tin cans: keeping worms, bailing the boat, storing screws and washers and nails and whatnots. He has made a few things out of tin cans as well, such as cowbells and even a denim-covered hassock for his mom. But the one thing he really wants to do with tin cans is build a robot, and that's exactly what he does.

In this delightful tale by Newbery Award-winning author Carol Ryrie Brink, Andy Buckram's tin robots are just useful mechanical bots until a freak storm destroys the family farm and, by a quirk of fate, electrifies his tin beings to life. And that is just the beginning of Andy's remarkable adventure.

Written in the 1960s, Andy Buckram's Tin Men reflects the values of a rural life of self-reliance and community in the face of adversity. As with Brink's popular works Caddie Woodlawn, Winter Cottage, and The Pink Motel, this heartwarming tale of a boy's fantasy come to life brims with challenges and adventure at every turn, and exudes the warmth of people-and robots-joining together to overcome all obstacles in reaching safety and a loving family.

This is a book you will want to return to again and again with children and siblings-a keeper to be passed through generations.
