The sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Wild Robot, by award-winning author Peter Brown Roz is no ordinary robot. After being washed up on the shore of a remote and wild island, she learned to adapt and make it her home, befriend its animal inhabitants and even adopt a small orphaned gosling, Brightbill. But a new life is now beginning for Roz - she has been taken away, far away from her island, back to civilisation. Where she must pretend that she is a robot like any other - there to follow orders and to carry out tasks on the farm where she now works. She knows she must never let anyone find out who she really is. And more than anything, she must find a way to escape, back to the island and her beloved Brightbill - a journey that will be fraught with danger and drama, and some very unexpected surprises ...

The Wild Robot Escapespacks in plenty of heart. It's a deceptively simple story, one whose goal is mapped out as early as possible, ensuring a hook-laden narrative from beginning to end. Its darkness may be persevering, but you find yourself immersed in Roz's mentality, her simple way of thinking and the stripped down storytelling complementing each other. Roz's journey is fraught with danger at every turn, but it's well worth every turn of the page * Starburst Magazine * The author Peter Brown makes the characters come alive with his convincing, descriptive storytelling. The story is very exciting from start to finish - it only took me a few days to read it because I couldn't put it down * National Geographic Kids * Roz the robot might not have any emotions, but the story is full of them with the children and animals she meets... a heartfelt story, and with short chapters it's an easy read! * Creative Steps * Brilliantly drawn and surprisingly touching, this merges the mechanical with the human beautifully * Angels and Urchins *
