The Wild Robot Escapes (The Wild Robot #2) Reviews
In his author's note, Peter Brown says he imagined Roz "being torn between the natural world and the civilized world" and that's why he wrote this sequel.
That conflict is not in this book.
On page 23, Roz says "I will try to escape." The next 200 pages involve Roz plotting an escape, then on the run. There are a few new underdeveloped characters, like the farm family Roz soon escapes from or a wolf motivated by revenge, but we learn nothing new about Roz or Brightbill, her goose son. Brown's art ...more
A good follow up to The Wild Robot. It’s a fun story of Roz’s attempts to return to her island home. Enjoyed seeing her and Brightbill again, as well as meeting a new cast of characters on the farm where Roz is sent to work after being refurbished.
This is a really good book. I agree with many other readers that this book is superior to the first book, The Wild Robot. Definitely a little silly at times, especially with the fact that Roz has become so famous, but also very heartwarming and real.
Anyway, Roz is repaired and sent to work on a farm. But her old 'wild' mind is still her own, and she befriends the kids and the cows. As you might guess, she escapes to try to work her way back to her home on the wild island.
But this is hard for her ...more
The illustrations continue to compliment the story so anyone listening to it only gets about 80% of the story. And Brown continues his adventures of Roz, the robot programmed to do what people ask of her. She learned to survive on an island and can talk to animals in the first book and in this one she has bee reprogrammed to work on a family farm though she eagerly awaits word from her son, Brightbill, a goose.
The stories she tells the two kids on the farm are her own stories and they're regale ...more
Fantastic sequel to the Wild Robot. Just as sweet and simple as the first, The Wild Robot Escapes did not disappoint! Roz has been rebuilt and is working on a large dairy farm. Typical of Roz, she befriends all the animals (and the children), but longs for her life on the island as a wild robot, especially her goose son, Brightbill. Her kindness to others results in them wanting to show her kindness too and help her return to where she feels most at peace. However, there are a lot of obstacles t ...more
Loved it! What a great conclusion to a terrific book by a great author! A great adventure for young kids!
I was hoping for a sequel, and luckily enough, my wish was granted.
It was a pleasure to see Roz again, because she truly is the most wonderful robot I have ever met, and this comes straight from the mouth of someone who, as a general rule, would rather read about anything other than metallic creatures.
But Roz is like no other existing robot. For one, she can speak to animals, not only humans. Moreover, she genuinely cares about the world and its inhabitants, not because she was programmed to, ...more
Roz, our fierce little robot, has been refitted, debunked and adjusted but that doesn't mean she has no mind of her own. To the rest of the world she must pretend to be just another mindless mechanical slave. She arrives at a farm to help with the chores and although she enjoys her work, speaking to the farm animals and the kindness of the Shareef family, she is set on plotting her escape and finding her foster son, Brightbill the goose.
This is not just another wild goose chase but a clever less ...more
