Staff Reviews

The Wild Robot is picture book pro Peter Brown’s middle grade fiction debut. It’s an utterly original Robinson Crusoe story told in short chapters with an abundance of fantastic illustration. This book should have wide appeal for both both girls and boys, and opportunities for lively discussion abound. A thoughtful reader will have much to ponder, and the reader who just likes action with talking robots and talking animals will be highly entertained. Strongly and enthusiastically recommended! — Jennifer Armstrong

Award winning picture book author, Peter Brown, has created a wonderful story for bigger readers. Fully illustrated, this is a story of unusual friendship and the power and want of belonging.

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.
