Publisher's Summary

It's easy being a robot, if you play by all the rules - but when Doug gets curious, he decides to unplug and forge his own path. And he discovers a whole world of what's possible. Soon to be the basis of an animated series from DreamWorks and Apple TV! 

Doug is a robot. His parents want him to be smart, so each morning they plug him in and start the information download. After a morning spent learning facts about the city, Doug suspects he could learn even more about the city by going outside and exploring it. And so Doug...unplugs. What follows is an exciting day of adventure and discovery. Doug learns amazing things by doing and seeing and touching and listening - and above all, by interacting with a new friend. 

Dan Yaccarino's funny story of robot rebellion is a great reminder that sometimes the best way to learn about the world is to go out and be in it.
