Nothing can stop hard-working robots, Blink, Zinc, Blip, and Zip, from performing their many household tasks until they get caught in a downpour.

Meet the robots. . . .
Blink's the one who cooks our meals.
Zinc can fix things made of steel.
Blip, he keeps our yard so green.
Zip, he simply loves to clean.

Blink, Zinc, Blip, and Zip are very busy robots. From the kitchen to the living room, from the garage to the garden, nothing can stop this industrious bunch. Except . . . rain! After they get caught in a sudden downpour, the robots' circuits are all crossed. Blink bakes a birdhouse. Zinc repairs a pot of stew. Blip rakes the windows. Zip dusts the lemon tree. Can anything be done to set these robots straight? Bob Staake's bold, graphic art style is perfectly suited to the futuristic subjects of his clever, humorous story.
