Robots Don’t Say Please (and Can’t Eat Cheese) is an off the wall children’s story about your P’s and Q’s. Everyone knows good manners are important. Everyone except Robot. Barney’s mechanical best friend struggles to see why “Please” and “Thank You” matter so much, but when he gets himself into trouble with some gooey Fondue, he soon learns why.

Written by Lucy Keeling and illustrated by Kris Smith, Robots Don’t Say Please is a story about the value of good manners; one that teaches children that saying “Please” and “Thank You” is the right thing to do. Making her debut, Keeling captures the heart of classic rhyming children’s stories and combines it with a wacky sense of humour and a dash of cheesy fun. Robots… are brought to life by Kris Smith’s beautifully curious watercolour illustrations; each simple design adding even more character and charm to every page.
