Book of the Week: The Wild Robot by Peter Brown

In this book

A robot washes ashore a wild island. Roz doesn’t know why she is there, how she got there, or what she has been designed to do. But she knows this much: she must learn to survive.

Slowly befriended by animals, our robot learns to love and to be loved. But what happens when the world outside the island finds out where Roz is, and what she’s been up to?
