Shipwrecked on a remote, wild island, Robot Roz learned from the unwelcoming animal inhabitants and adapted to her surroundings — and then the humans came. In this book, Roz has been reprogrammed to follow the orders of humans, but desperately misses her animal friends and island home. Fortunately, she has a few human allies who may be able to help her get back to her island home!
From bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator Peter Brown comes a heartwarming and action-packed sequel to his New York Times bestselling The Wild Robot, about what happens when nature and technology collide.
"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." — Publishers Weekly
