Staff Reviews


"A castaway robot uses her powers of logic and observation to adapt to the remote island life to which she awakes, slowly but surely winning over the suspicious animals, learning their language, and even adopting an abandoned gosling. But when the worlds of technology and nature ultimately collide, difficult decisions confront them all that will leave readers pondering profound questions about our modern world. Provocative and poignant, Peter Brown's first novel packs a big philosophical punch."

Description


Wall-E meets Hatchet in this New York Times bestselling illustrated middle grade novel from Caldecott Honor winner Peter Brown

Can a robot survive in the wilderness?

When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is all 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 violent 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.
