From the book My Hippo Has the Hiccups
My robot does my homework.
He helps me every night.
The trouble is he doesn’t get
too many answers right.
He’d probably do better
at homework but, you see,
I built him, so he only knows
the things he learned from me.

Logan better study up on his geography facts so he doesn’t flunk out!
Third-grader Logan Applebaum has the perfect solution to finding time for all that pesky homework—just have his cousin, Java, do it for him. With a robot cousin, Logan’s pretty much guaranteed straight As.
But when Mrs. Perriwinkle announces that the class will have a geography bee, Logan realizes that if he doesn’t want to be exposed as a cheater, he’s going to have to hit the books and fill his own hard drive with facts.
The competition’s going to be tough. And the more time he spends studying, the more he wants to show what he’s learned. Can Logan out-smart the mega mean Silverspoon twins who win at everything and a cousin who’s a super computer to come out on top as the geography king?

"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.
