Can a robot survive in the wilderness?

When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. She has no idea how she got there or what her purpose is--but she knows she needs to survive. After battling a fierce storm and escaping a vicious bear attack, she realizes that her only hope for survival is to adapt to her surroundings and learn from the island's unwelcoming animal inhabitants.

As Roz slowly befriends the animals, the island starts to feel like home--until, one day, the robot's mysterious past comes back to haunt her.

From bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator Peter Brown comes a heartwarming and action-packed novel about what happens when nature and technology collide.

      The woods is no place for a robot. But when a boat crashes Roz ends up stranded on the Island, all the animals think Roz is a monster until she shows them she's not. Me and my class started reading the book and we all loved it! Now when we go to social security studies our teacher reads it to us, I feel like you'll love it if you read "The wild robot" enjoy!

                A heartwarming tale...adventurous and enthralling, this book brings life to both the technological and natural world. A must-read! Roz is an ordinary looking robot with an extraordinary life. The first things she sees after opening her eyes are the walls of a box, which floats around in the ocean near a mysterious island. When she crawls out, her whole life becomes a fight for survival...storms, bear attacks, and more, she must be ready to face the dangers. Battered, Roz must do what it takes to live on this remote island, even though its animal inhabitants don’t see it that way—they are mean and unwelcoming. Though she soon settles in, her past—and future start to come back...and might be more shocking than anyone could have known. She must survive. Can Roz do it? Read this book to find out!
