Meet the Roboteers
- Tim – a ten year old boy (when we first meet him) who is obsessive about robots and former owner of Sugar.
- Priya – Tim’s best and oldest friend is a girl of the same age as him who loves computer programming and mystery solving
- Martin – Another boy in their school year. Martin first appeared in Do Not Feed the Troll. He loves mechanics and especially Meccano.
- Sugar – Sugar is a Robot. He looks like a toy but he is actually a living robot. Funny, Super-intelligent but not all that savvy, Sugar is at the heart of The Roboteers. I don’t want to give too much away. here but how he came to be alive is very much connected to the formation of the Roboteers.
- The Friends – These are mysterious helpers of the Roboteers. Rarely are they directly involved in their adventures but they are always there in the background. They are not what you expect.
The Roboteers first appeared in the novel Sugar the Robot and the race to save the Earth. Where Tim fixes a toy robot he inherits from his Grandad and gets a lot more than he bargained for. What starts as a hobby ends in a race to stop an alien invasion and save humanity.
The next full-length adventure for The Roboteers was the award winning Do Not Feed The Troll! In this book Martin and his family move house only to find a creature calling itself a troll living in a hole in their back garden. At first they think the troll is cute but soon they realise it’s a lot more dangerous than it looks!
