Alfie is off school after an accident in which he lost both his hand and his confidence. He's lonely all day on his own. So when he comes across Eric, a one-legged robot in need of a friend, he brings him home with him.

But a ban on humanoid robots has just been passed, which means Alfie is breaking the law by sheltering Eric.

Can he keep his new friend safe - and himself out of trouble?

A funny and heartwarming adventure about two best friends helping put themselves back together, from the award-winning Frank Cottrell-Boyce.
