The Captain’s Log – the wild robot escapes (Peter Brown)

Ahoy there me mateys!  I fell in love with Roz in the first book, the wild robot.  While I try to post no spoilers, if ye haven’t read the first book then ye might want to skip this post.  If ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . .

It was wonderful to be readin’ about Roz again and seeing how she handles the new obstacles in her path.  Unlike the first book that happens in the wild, this book finds Roz dealing with humans and farming and cities.  As always she is gregarious, hard-working, thoughtful, compassionate, and fabulous.  I adored her entire time working on the farm.

Another quick and lovely read by the author.  His illustrations were wonderful and heartwarming.  While I be satisfied with the conclusion of the series, closing that final page was bittersweet.  I will miss the further adventures of Roz but know she can surely handle anything that comes her way.

And like I said before, this be categorized as middle-grade.  Bah!  Don’t let that stop ye!  I don’t put age limits on things.  Everyone should read about Roz the robot.

If ye be like me (Arrrr!) and love the stories behind the stories then check out the author’s inspiration and ideas for the wild robot like this example of an early sketch for Roz (from the author’s website):

Check out me crew members’ reviews of this one:

Dan @ onemanbookclub’s review – “We finished The Wild Robot Escapes together last night.  Friends, it was SO great! We teared (quietly) and cheered (loudly) at all the right places, and I’m still trying to figure out how a story about a robot with a goose for a son can have the same impact on a 5 year old, and 8 year old, and a 42 year old.”

Lola @ hitormiss’ review – “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.”

The author’s website has this to say about the novel:

In 2016 I published my first children’s novel, The Wild Robot. It’s the story of a robot named Roz and her struggle to survive on a remote, wild island . . .

But that wasn’t the whole story. You see, from the moment I started dreaming up The Wild Robot, I was also dreaming up the sequel. It would be another survival story, only this time Roz would have to survive in civilization, with cities and humans and other robots. Well, it’s taken a while, but I’ve finally written and illustrated that sequel.
