When a group of friendly robots, led by Frankenbot Stu, gets inspired to start a school of their own, they encounter an old building with its own set of rules. A time machine appears, and the bots get so excited they forget to follow the rules. After a journey through time and space, the Frankenbots return home to a different world, proving sometimes rules are there for bots to follow.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write a book that proves to children that school can be a wonderful place full of discovery and adventure.
The Frankenbots found an old, stone castle, perched high above Bolts Borough. An empty manor with overgrown trees, a green kingdom from a long time ago.

Children’s book author Michael Ferrone knew that he would one day create illustrated books and cartoons after having taken an illustrating and writing class at his local library when he was a child. Coming up with story ideas from life experiences and his imagination, Michael has learned that inspiration can emerge from surprising places and people sometimes.
Michael tends to write as if he is creating a television show, with his drafts looking more like scripts. He believes that in every good story, the characters must go through personal journeys and discover something new about themselves in the process; an obstacle usually presents itself and the characters must find it within themselves to overcome. He hopes that his young readers come away from his books with a sense of self-discovery, community-building, and recognizing the value of positive relationships.
When he isn’t writing empowering and uplifting stories for kids, Michael and his wife like to take their two dogs—a husky named Frankie and a lab mix named Dax—on adventures where they live in Southern California. He also enjoys learning new things, picking up new hobbies, and working on his Frankenbots cartoon project. More on this quest and his other books can be found at https://www.frankenbots.co/ .
