Can a robot survive in the wilderness?

When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. She has no idea how she got there or what her purpose is--but she knows she needs to survive. After battling a fierce storm and escaping a vicious bear attack, she realizes that her only hope for survival is to adapt to her surroundings and learn from the island's unwelcoming animal inhabitants.

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.

From bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator Peter Brown comes a heartwarming and action-packed novel about what happens when nature and technology collide.

      I loved this book! It was a combination of action, nature, machines, and so much more! It is super sad how all the animals think she's a monsters just because she's different! Peter Brown gave a excellent and important message and that is even though your different that doesn't mean your bad! That is a valuable and true lesson.

          This book is about 500 robots who are being brought to a different place on a ship but the ship found its way into a Giant Lightning storm. All the robots on the boat sank escaped five. Four crashed and one was about to but just made it on a shallow rock. Some otters came and checked out this robot but one accidentally clicked the on button. The robot bursted to life and scared away the otters but noticed it was on a far away inland! Read The Wild Robot to find out what happens to this Wild, Curios Robot!

                This book is very good. It is about a robot that gets lost on a island and tries to figure out why he is here and what the animals around here do. This book really made me happy because I loved the story idea and the way the robot Roz loved everything
