Reviews The Wild Robot Escapes (The Wild Robot, #2)

  • Mary Lee
    I literally gasped aloud when I opened the package and found this inside. There might have been bright lights and trumpet music. Every now and then, miracles do occur in Readerland.
  • Aliza Werner
    Fans of THE WILD ROBOT, you will fall in love all over again with Roz and her adventures. This sequel was unputdownable. Middle grade perfection. Heart, joy, love, sacrifice...and what it means to know a home.
  • Carrie Shaurette
    This was the perfect palate cleanser after coming off a yearlong young adult literature committee. Although quieter than its predecessor, Roz still manages to steal the show in this sequel. (I did want more than Chitchat's super brief appearance.) I like the way she struggles with being different through all the connections she makes as she tries to make her way back to Brightbill. This is such a charming series that I would strongly recommend fo...
  • Becky
    Such a wonderful book! Roz' s story picks up where the first book left off. Readers follow her on her quest to find her gosling Brightbill and learn about her maker's history in the process.
  • Niki Marion
    A not-too-shabby sequel from Peter Brown. With a tidy ending (much unlike the first book), this story feels concluded, but I'm not sure if there are more books lined up for this series or not. I can't wait to see the final illustrations--unfortunately there were only a few preliminary designs in the ARC I read.
  • Ms Threlkeld
    I zipped through the ARC of this brilliant sequel. I loved it more than the first book.

    Spoiler alert for those unfortunates who have not read The Wild Robot - Roz is captured by the Recons and returned to civilization for reprogramming. But she is a smart robot and adapts, as she did in the first book. Eventually, she is delivered to a farm owned by a man named Shareef. Roz pines for her son, Brightbill and is always on the lookout for an opportunity to foil the tether that keeps her bound to the farm. In the meanwhile, she forms b...

    The Wild Robot, or Roz, returns in an exciting sequel. At the end of her first book, Roz was taken away from the island where she lived with her animal friends and her adopted son, the goose named Brightbill. Roz had been damaged and her friends loaded her onto an airship so that she would be returned to the factory and repaired. So this adventure begins with Roz being sent from the factory to work for a farmer who has purchased her. His farm is ...
  • Darlene
    This delightful sequel to the popular THE WILD ROBOT picks up with Roz working on a farm, far away from the island she loves. And far away from her son Brightbill. Even though Roz enjoys the work she does on the farm, she dreams of escape. She wants to find her son and go back to the life she knew. A life in the wild. With the help of the farmer’s children, and many animal friends along the way, Roz escapes and sets out on an adventure fraught ...
  • Kate
    I completely adored The Wild Robot and was excited to read the sequel. No surprise, this doesn't quite measure up, but it is still engaging, sweet, and thought provoking. In this book, Roz is no longer on the. island with her friends. Instead, she is working on a dairy farm with a family. She befriends the cows and the children and all the while, plans her escape.This is not as intriguing as the first book, which had the reader thinking about wha...
  • Karen Arendt
    Roz is an amazing character, compassionate, intelligent, and a robot. Her story begins on a farm in a world where robots are purchased to do the work of humans. What makes Roz different is her brain- she thinks for herself. She grows to love the family on Hilltop farm even though her greatest wish is to return to her son. Brightbill. The third person narration allows readers to see into every other character, which only adds to the depth of the s...
  • Amber Webb
    Peter Brown does not disappoint in this sequel to The Wild Robot. Everyone wants to know what happens to our dear friend Roz and in this story we discover she is still the same kind, loving, defective robot. After reading her story this time, I loved her even more. The book is filled with kindness, care and understanding and the world needs more of that now than ever. This book goes in my HIGHLY RECOMMEND category. Don't miss it, pre-order it now...

    ***I received an e galley from Netgalley in return for an honest review.***3.5I liked both in the series well enough. They are quick reads and I think kids like the short chapters. I would have been fine with The Wild Robot as a stand alone too.Roz was sent from her island home to be repaired, the island animals assuming they would never see her again. Roz maintains her "wildness" and plays along with the Makers to be fixed and sent back out into...
  • Pamela
    I thought this was so cute, but I didn't like it as much as the first one. I think it has the same kind of innocence as the first one, but I think it was discovering this bleak futur in cities and all that made it less enjoyable for me. That being said, Roz is perfect and was so full of hope! I was often scared that it wouldnt be a good ending, which is also something I didn't have in the first book. I think it's worth a read, but the first one w...

    I received an Advanced Reading Copy of The Wild Robot Escapes from NetGalley in return for an honest review. Thank you, NetGalley! The Wild Robot Escapes is out March 13, 2018.Roz the robot has been swept away from her wild island home and her beloved goose son Brightbill to be repaired and rebooted. She finds herself on a farm and considered "just a robot" but Roz is a smart and resourceful robot. She befriends the family and hides her longing f...

    Thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for providing a copy for review. I loved The Wild Robot when it came out a few years ago, and as Roz's story obviously continued, I was delighted to see this book available. In The Wild Robot Escapes, we get the opportunity to see this slightly dystopian world that Roz inhabits, and to watch her interact with humans as well as the domesticated animals on a farm. While I don't think this volume quite lived up...
  • Emily Montjoy
    As if we didn’t already love Roz so much, she came back and once again stole our hearts. Roz exemplifies what it means to love others, extend kindness, and never give up. Although Roz is torn between her old and new home, she can’t ignore the ache for her son and family of friends on the island. To all the Wild Robot fans out there, you absolutely will not be disappointed. It was worth the wait.
  • Nicole
    Received an Arc from the publisher. I am so happy that the sequel is just as wonderful as the original! Characters are well-developed and the plot flows nicely. Read this in one day, thoroughly enjoyed this book.
  • Melanie
    I loved this book for young readers. It is full of sweet, tender, moments and teaches kindness and responsibility and the never ending love of a parent.
  • Mary Jo
    The Wild Robot Escapes is every bit as good as The Wild Robot. Fans of Roz will be thrilled to continue the journey with her.
  • Brittany J Thurman
    A great sequel to the first The Wild Robot story!
  • Sandra Guerguy
    Wonderful and creative story about Roz the wild robot.
