A dysfunctional yet loving family must find a way to thwart a worldwide technology uprising in this laugh-out-loud Level 2 Ready-to-Read based on the motion picture from Sony Pictures Animation, The Mitchells vs. the Machines!
Meet the Mitchell family: They are the most unlikely people to save the world, but when electronic devices, including a new line of personal robots, take over, it’s up to them to save humanity. Get to know everyone in the family, from parents Rick and Linda Mitchell; to their daughter, Katie; and son, Aaron—and don’t forget their lovable dog, Monchi!
Katie is an aspiring filmmaker, Aaron loves dinosaurs more than anything in the world, Rick loves the great outdoors, Linda just wants them all to get along—and none of them are trained in battling refrigerators or robots. On paper they actually sound like the world’s worst family to rely on during a technology takeover. They have flaws and are undeniably human…but that is what makes them perfect for the job.
