Publisher's Summary

When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. Why is she there? Where did she come from? And, most important, how will she survive in her harsh surroundings? Roz's only hope is to learn from the island's hostile animal inhabitants. When she tries to care for an orphaned gosling, the other animals finally decide to help, and the island starts to feel like home. Until one day, the robot's mysterious past comes back to haunt her....

Heartwarming and full of action, Peter Brown's middle-grade debut raises thought-provoking questions about the environment, the role technology plays in our world, and what it means to be alive.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

What the Critics Say

"This strong debut middle grade novel...is a first purchase for most middle grade collections." (School Library Journal)

    My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.

    Story
    "Warm Hearted, Positronic Woman"

    I DON'T EAT ANYTHING, INCLUDING PARENTS
    I, a 58 year old truck driver, loved this. I have always liked most things Robot, especially Asimov's, The Positronic Man. 500 robots are in crates on a ship, which goes down in the ocean. One crate makes it to an island, in which no humans live. Seals open up the crate and the robot is born, not knowing what a human is. What results is a great loving story in which the animals accept this robot.

    YOU KNOW HOW THEY ARE AT THIS AGE
    The robot becomes a parent to a goose. The story teaches about co-operation through storytelling not through speeches. It touches on several life issues without dwelling on them or boring the reader. This is always entertaining.

    Story
    "Good until the end"

    The story takes a little while to get going but once it starts moving it is excellent until the very end. This story teaches so much to the listener (i.e. patience, caring, friendships) but I do not understand adding in the machine guns and hunting at the end. Isn't there already enough violence in the world for our young listeners. Very disappointed that Mr. Brown felt he had to go this way at the end.

    Absolutely, not a long book, but the storyline goes at a good pace, and I fell in love with all the characters.

    Vivid storytelling, great characters


    Have you listened to any of Kate Atwater’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but she was great


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yep, was totally worried about how the book was going to end, deeply invested in the characters

    "The Wild Robot"

    The Wild Robot

    I liked the fact that all the animals helped The Wild Robot in the end.
    I wondered if there will be another robot on the island when Roz gets back like she planned! I thought that in the end, when Roz was fighting Rico 1, she was going to win. But when it was a tied fight, and Roz had to go home, I almost cried.
