Robots are bombing buildings.
Wham! Mary and Tommy can’t walk after a car crash so Uncle Frank gives them robots. They sit at their computers and control the big machines that attend sixth grade in their place.
That soon gets boring so they send the robots exploring. Right off they spot a purse snatcher and chase him down. The next day their robots stop a bank robbery. They take bullies to the principal, rescue a lady trapped under a car, and even collect money for a homeless friend.
However, Mary and Tommy face their greatest challenge when a lunatic starts using robots to blow up buildings.
