Junkyard Story Series: Episode 4 - Oil!
Mike and Joe have run out of clean oil for the robot animals of the junkyard! Can they figure out how to fix the oil machine before everyone rusts solid?
*clink!* *tink!* *tank!*
Everyone sat round a table made of tyres and metal. The group clinked their mugs together. Only, they were not drinking tea. The robot creatures all drank dark motor oil. Joe Sakana and Mike Himmel had fizzy drinks in their cups.
It was an amazing sight: two kids from Swindon and their group of living junkyard robots. An alligator, a tall frog, a large grasshopper and a droopy-eyed rabbit - the boys had brought them all to life by mysterious, heart-shaped electronic parts.
“Here’s to a wicked summer,” Mike toasted.
“Hear, hear,” Snappy, the robot alligator said.
