Also beobachtet sie, erlernt die Sprache der Tiere und entdeckt, dass Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft sie weiterbringen.

Um robô é capaz de sobreviver na natureza selvagem?
Peter Brown sempre foi fascinado por robôs e pela natureza, e depois de anos imaginando, escrevendo e desenhando, ele deu vida a Roz, uma robô que, ao abrir os olhos pela primeira vez, se vê sozinha numa ilha.
Ela não tem a menor ideia de como foi parar ali, mas foi programada para sobreviver. Depois de suportar uma tempestade intensa e es¬capar de ursos furiosos, ela se dá conta de que sua única esperança é se adaptar ao ambiente, e vai ter que aprender isso com os nada simpáticos animais que ha¬bitam a ilha.
Tudo parece melhorar quando Roz consegue, aos poucos, se aproximar dos bichos e criar um laço inquebrável com um filhote de ganso abandonado. Mas sua natureza é diferente, e o misterioso passado da robô, que a levou àquele ambiente selvagem, está prestes a retornar para assombrá-la.
Robô selvagem é uma história co¬movente e cheia de aventuras sobre o que acontece quando a natureza e a tecnolo¬gia colidem inesperadamente, como os humanos afetam o mundo ao nosso redor e o que significa estar vivo.
