Staff Reviews


Another awesome adventure with Roz the Robot!
Captured and deactivated at the end of book 1, Roz wakes up at the farm of nice family who bought her from a Discount Robot store. Her job now is to take care of the farm animals, but all she wants is to go back home to her island and her friends, and most importantly, find her son. Will she ever be able to break her programming and leave the farm?
Illustrations and short chapters make this a great family or classroom read - but make sure you pick up book 1 first!

— Leah Moore
