Friends, I will not lie. I wrote fan fiction about the Norby books in the 2nd grade.
I grew up reading the Norby comics that were published in Boy's Life Magazine, so I was fast to pick up a book that featured my favorite mixed-up robot. But for some reason, I never read the whole thing, so it's been sitting in my to-read pile for years, traveling from bookshelf to bookshelf, getting packed away with other unread books, just waiting for me to get back to it.

Originally published as Norby and the Lost Princess and Norby and the Invaders, number 3 and number 4 in the series. There are two pages of very awkward conversation at the beginning that don't do a very good job of catching up people who haven't read the two previous books. Two silly robots and dragons stories with lessons about everyone being friends and taking care of the environment. I'm cutting the book some slack giving it 3 stars instead of 2 stars because I think I would have enjoyed it

Obviously it’s a kids book so the problems aren’t too hard and everyone’s friends at the end, but that’s just nice sometimes.
I picked up this 1985 book hoping I could recommend it to my nephew. It's written with an interest level for 12-year-old boys (as the main character is a young teen boy himself), but the reading level (and the small print in my paperback copy) made me think that not many modern 12-year-old boys would be interested. This book is actually the third and fourth story about the main character and his trusty robot Norby, so some of my initial difficulties picking up on the plot at the beginning could
Obviously a very young adult book. I could finish it as it was just too corny and simplistic.
