The Wild Robot Escapes

Review: owlowlowl

The Wild Robot Escapes - Peter Brown

 

Our story begins in a city, with buildings and streets and bridges and parks.

– First sentence

At the end of the first book, Roz is taken away from her island home and brought back to the factory. She is reactivated at Hilltop farm to work for the Shreef family. As much as she enjoys her new home (kids, cows, etc.), Roz misses Brightbill and all her friends on the island. Will she be able to keep her secret? And will she ever make it back to her island home?

This is a great follow up and just as quirky and fun as the first one. I read this to my book club at school. The kids liked the first book better, but they did enjoy this one. It took a while to get going, but the end is worth it.

Recommended to: 3rd-5th graders who like quirky stories with talking animals
