    March 12, 2018
    In the thought-provoking sequel to Brown's middle-grade debut, The Wild Robot, the adventure picks up as the resilient Roz (short for ROZZUM unit 7134) is repaired and shipped off to Hilltop Farm. With its domesticated animals and whirring machines, the dairy farm is a far cry from the remote island that the robot has come to call home. Though her owner, Mr. Shareef, and his two children come to embrace Roz as part of the family, she is desperate to make her way back to the island and her adopted gosling son, Brightbill. Seeking their help, Roz confides in the Shareef children that she is not like other robots and asks them, "Is being different the same as being defective?" The robot's odyssey—which brings her from the countryside to the big city, where she comes face-to-face with her designer—raises poignant quandaries about the nature of love and selfhood. While such questions remain unresolved, Roz emerges as a striking symbol of humanity for the very reason that she poses and ponders them. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 8-12.

  • AudioFile Magazine In this sequel to THE WILD ROBOT, robot Roz wakes up on a farm far from the wild island she calls home. The audiobook follows her adventures as she attempts to escape and reunite with her family and friends. Narrator Kathleen McInerney delivers the story with a smile in her voice, echoing the novel's tone, which remains gentle even as danger mounts. Roz's robotic voice contrasts nicely with those of the more expressive animal and human characters. A panoply of background noises--mechanical whirs, cricket sounds, traffic, mooing, and more--paint an auditory picture for young listeners, although they occasionally distract from the text. The audiobook is accompanied by a PDF with Brown's illustrations. E.C. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
