Tecnologia e natura possono andare d’accordo?
Una macchina programmata dall’uomo può imparare a provare dei sentimenti, e persino ad amare?
Quando Roz apre gli occhi per la prima volta, scopre che è sola su un'isola remota e selvaggia. Perché è lì? Da dove è venuta? E, cosa più importante, come sopravvivrà in quell’ambiente difficile?
Rozzum unità 7134 è un robot femmina programmata per sopravvivere in qualsiasi condizione. Un giorno si sveglia su un’isola dopo il naufragio della nave su cui viaggiava. Con estrema fatica e determinazione, Roz impara il linguaggio degli animali, si costruisce una casa e adotta un’ochetta rimasta orfana con cui instaurerà un profondissimo legame. Ma, in un mondo lontano governato dalla tecnologia qualcuno la sta cercando, e non è disposto ad arrendersi senza combattere…
Un libro splendidamente illustrato, una storia profonda, tenera e travolgente sull’accettazione del diverso che dimostra come, ove esista rispetto e amore, sia possibile coesistere in armonia quando le differenze si trasformano in nuove possibilità.

FRIENDSHIP OVER - if you don't love this book (I'm deadly serious - don't test me) I cannot remember the last time when I was so surprised and delighted . This brought me back to my childhood and I am forever grateful to Peter Brown for writing it. One year ago, I awoke on the shore of island. I was j Leggi tutto
I don’t believe I’ve ever said this in a review of a book before, but I think a lovely video game for kids can be made out of Peter Brown’s new middle grade novel. The illustrations made me think that, with their original style and 3-D quality. Plus the story could work. Because this is about a robot Leggi tutto
My family loves Peter Brown and we have a few of his other children’s books in our home library which are favorites. We were so excited to find out he had written a middle-grade book and went ahead and purchased The Wild Robot . After my daughter read it, she kept begging me to get to it, and I’m sor Leggi tutto
There are far fewer robot middle grade books out there than you might expect. This is probably because, as a general rule, robots fall into the Data from Star Trek trap. Their sole purpose in any narrative is to explain what it is to be human. You see this all the time in pop culture, so it stands t Leggi tutto
I know, I know. I'm as surprised as anyone . . . a book about a robot that I didn't go absolutely ga-ga over. Who'd a thunk it? I was expecting this to be one of my favorite reads of the year, but instead, I just found it strange - a weird, disconcerting read. You see, the author employs this folksy Leggi tutto
I loved the illustrations in this so much. They are absolutely perfect for the story. I actually loved the whole book. I thought it would be just a children's book but it actually had some important topics in it (global warming and the effect it has on animals for example). I'm really curious for t
This was a good idea. I have a nephew who just went to a robot convention to build a little robot. He is robot crazy, so I understand the popularity of a robot very well. I love them in Star Wars. I even loved Data in Star Trek. I could not relate to Roz, the robot, in this story. I didn't understan Leggi tutto
Read the ARC, which doesn't have the final illustrations and still thought it was powerful. This book will spark lots of great conversations with kids about kindness, community, and what it means to be alive. Update: Read the finished book and declare it even better with the illustrations, of course! Leggi tutto
The first 70% of The Wild Robot is adorable. This middle aged story is void of humans and our lead character is instead a robot. One that can learn and analysis things in order to determine the best course of action based on databases stored in it's logs (things like survival, animal types, etc.). P Leggi tutto
