Wall-E meets Hatchet in this new illustrated middle grade novel from New York Times bestselling author Peter Brown.


This book had a very sad ending but happy ending. The robot got taken to his makers to be repaired. When he first came on the island, he didn't know how to survive but with the help of his son Brightbill and the animals on the island, the robot manages to learn 4 things: how to survive in the wild, how to be a mother, learning to speak animal, and being a good friend.

This book is something I was introduced to at school and finished it at home. It shows an alternative universe and makes you question AI.

It interested me because it was like a mystery and adventure and my favourite part was how she found a baby duck and asked the other ducks to see if it were their baby duck but it was unwanted so she took care of the baby duck.

A little slower to get into than other books but so glad that I persisted with it. Such a great story about adaptation and change and empathy. Really enjoyed it!

I like that the robot looked after the gosling and the robot was a good mum.

I like this book because its good and its really interesting and its a good book. I like Brightbill because he's a goose and I like geese. My favourite part of the book is when Roz saves Brightbill.

It was fascinating. I love the fact that Roz was the only robot that survived. I love the fact that he didn’t have no friends to start off with, but he soon made some along his path.

I liked how throughout the robot’s life she discovers more and more about the animals and how they live.

I like this book because it has action and it teaches you to be kind it shows you to keep moving never back down never give up. This is a chapter book it has 80 chapters so if you are up for the challenge i recommend it.

Love the juxtaposition of the natural world and the man made and how they work together. A great story to share or read alone.

I like the opposites of nature and technology coming together. The natural and the artificial.
