The Wild Robot Escapes Reviews

  • Aliza Werner

    Fans of THE WILD ROBOT, you will fall in love all over again with Roz and her adventures. This sequel was unputdownable. Middle grade perfection. Heart, joy, love, sacrifice...and what it means to know a home.

  • Mary Lee

    I literally gasped aloud when I opened the package and found this inside. There might have been bright lights and trumpet music.

    Every now and then, miracles do occur in Readerland.

    Fantastic sequel to the Wild Robot. Just as sweet and simple as the first, The Wild Robot Escapes did not disappoint! Roz has been rebuilt and is working on a large dairy farm. Typical of Roz, she befriends all the animals (and the children), but longs for her life on the island as a wild robot, especially her goose son, Brightbill. Her kindness to others results in them wanting to show her kindness too and help her return to where she feels most at peace. However, there are a lot of obstacles t

    Fantastic sequel to the Wild Robot. Just as sweet and simple as the first, The Wild Robot Escapes did not disappoint! Roz has been rebuilt and is working on a large dairy farm. Typical of Roz, she befriends all the animals (and the children), but longs for her life on the island as a wild robot, especially her goose son, Brightbill. Her kindness to others results in them wanting to show her kindness too and help her return to where she feels most at peace. However, there are a lot of obstacles that stand in the way of that journey!

    The simplicity of the writing and how the story unfolds is one of the most charming aspects of this middle grade novel. It is absolutely delightful. The Wild Robot Escapes would be a great read aloud novel in a grade 2-5 classroom and definitely a novel that should be included in school and classroom libraries. Judging by how popular my daughter's copy has been, I would also say it makes a fabulous gift for a young reader!

    So happy to read about Roz and Brightbill again. This series is a must read for middle grades!!

    Love, love, LOVE this book. Roz is the best and I am willing to go on any journey with her, even if it involves pigeons. The first book in this series was a great adventure/survival story and while this one still has adventure elements it really focuses on gently asking the reader to ponder life's big questions,

    What is my purpose in life?

    What is home?

    Where do I belong?

    Do I think kids will necessarily dig into those questions by reading this independently? Not so much. But I do think the real

    Do I think kids will necessarily dig into those questions by reading this independently? Not so much. But I do think the real magic of this book will be when parents read it with their children or when a class reads it together, because there are so many great moments that beg to be discussed and so many opportunities to connect the story to science and technology. Now if only we could get Siri to be more like Roz...

    'The Wild Robot Escapes' is the middle-grade sequel to the 'The Wild Robot' both written and illustrated by New York Times bestselling children's author/illustrator Peter Brown. Both books received widespread acclaim, with the first winning and being nominated for many awards.

    'The Wild Robot Escapes' is the middle-grade sequel to the 'The Wild Robot' both written and illustrated by New York Times bestselling children's author/illustrator Peter Brown. Both books received widespread acclaim, with the first winning and being nominated for many awards.

    In the first book we met Roz who has many questions as she opens her eyes for the first time and finds herself on a remote desert island completely alone. But she isn't as alone as she thinks and she soon discovers that she can learn a lot from the island's animal inhabitants. Time passes and the once harsh island begins to feel like home to Roz but then her past comes back to haunt her.

    'The Wild Robot Escapes' follows on from where the last book left off - Roz has been captured and refurbished ready to be put to work on Hilltop Farm for the Shreef family. Typical of Roz, she befriends all of the animals on the dairy farm, not to mention the farmer's children with her outgoing personality. However, she longs to be reunited with her goose son, Brightbill. as well as the other animals from the island, and plans to escape. She is helped by a number of sympathisers but eventually is detained by the robot police and returned to the factory where she is reprogrammed to rid her of her personality which is deemed a malfunction. Will Roz manage to escape before they reprogramme her? Or will she be destined to serve humans for the rest of her days?

    The simplicity of the writing is a standout feature here, but Brown manages to include many situations that will have children asking questions - where do I belong? what is my purpose in life? Where is home? Just like the first book, this is an utterly charming and beautiful story, and Roz is a magical character with a special personality. A delightful little tale that exposes children to deeper topics, such as what it means to be human, man vs technology, identity/being yourself, kindness, empathy, loss, love, environment, loyalty, and sacrifice. Another work of brilliance from Brown that is wonderfully quirky, unique and fun. The chapters are short and many pages are illustrated, keeping children engaged and interested in the plot. Kids will love this heartwarming sequel as much as the first!

    Many thanks to Piccadilly Press for an ARC. I was not required to post a review and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

    Ahoy there me mateys! I fell in love with Roz in the first book, the wild robot. While I try to post no spoilers, if ye haven’t read the first book then ye might want to skip this post. If ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . .

    It was wonderful to be readin’ about Roz again and seeing how she handles the new obstacles in her path. Unlike the first book that happens in the wild, this book finds Roz dealing with humans and farming and cities. As always she is gregarious, hard-working, thoughtful, compassionate, and fabulous. I adored her entire time working on the farm.

    Another quick and lovely read by the author. His illustrations were wonderful and heartwarming. While I be satisfied with the conclusion of the series, closing that final page was bittersweet. I will miss the further adventures of Roz but know she can surely handle anything that comes her way.

    And like I said before, this be categorized as middle-grade. Bah! Don’t let that stop ye! I don’t put age limits on things. Everyone should read about Roz the robot.

    I was hoping for a sequel, and luckily enough, my wish was granted.

    It was a pleasure to see Roz again, because she truly is the most wonderful robot I have ever met, and this comes straight from the mouth of someone who, as a general rule, would rather read about anything other than metallic creatures.

    But Roz is like no other existing robot. For one, she can speak to animals, not only humans. Moreover, she genuinely cares about the world and its inhabitants, not because she was programmed to,

    It was a pleasure to see Roz again, because she truly is the most wonderful robot I have ever met, and this comes straight from the mouth of someone who, as a general rule, would rather read about anything other than metallic creatures.

    But Roz is like no other existing robot. For one, she can speak to animals, not only humans. Moreover, she genuinely cares about the world and its inhabitants, not because she was programmed to, but because she discovered that there is true beauty on the planet and that the people/animals on it contribute to it.

    In this story, Roz is separated from the community she managed to become part of on the island that became her home. Most heartbreaking of all, she is separated from her son… who is a goose, yes, yes. While her new family could surely have been much worse, she does not feel as though she belongs on a farm, so far away from her own family.

    So she plans to escape. But she cannot do it alone, so perhaps the animals and her new family will help in some way? The farm is nothing like the island she came to know as well as her own robot parts, so she needs as much help as she can get.

    What a beautiful, if a little bittersweet, conclusion. My copy did not include all the adorable pictures that I fell head over heels for in the first book, but certainly the final copy will. Fortunately, it did not affect my reading experience for the worst, as I am used to books without illustrations, but I cannot wait to see the finished work all the same.

    I’m so glad Peter Brown decided to write this continuation and final book. I, and I’m sure a lot of other readers, needed it. I am now entirely satisfied with this story and can sleep soundly knowing all is well that ends well.

    I liked the sequel as much as the original book. Roz the robot was captured at the end of the first book, and has been refurbished to work as a robot a farm, where she befriends both the animals and the farmer's children with her outgoing personality. However, she misses her gosling son, Brightbill, and her animal friends from the island, and makes a plan to return home when migrating geese help her reunite with Brightbill.

    I liked the sequel as much as the original book.

However, she misses her gosling son, Brightbill, and her animal friends from the island, and makes a plan to return home when migrating geese help her reunite with Brightbill. As she runs away, she faces many obstacles, but is helped by a number of sympathizers, who have heard of her kindness. Eventually though, she is captured by the robot police and returned to the factory, where her programming malfunction (i.e., personality) needs to be terminated. Read both books, and find out what happens. Cute and good fun for late elementary or middle school age readers.
