JJ52 cover image.

This is the first chapter of a humorous science-fiction story designed to “hook” year 3 students into reading chapter books by themselves. In this chapter, twins Ana and Tai build a robot for a school project. Overnight, the robot gets “zapped” by lightning and comes to life, creating all kinds of problems! The chapter ends with the story hanging in suspense – and with an expectation of more trouble to follow.
