Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3–7—Brown makes his chapter book debut with this story about a robot who finds herself shipwrecked on an island. ROZZUM unit 7134—Roz for short—uses her computer brain to gather information about her unfamiliar surroundings and quickly realizes that she must learn to adapt to her new environment and be wild in order to survive. The animals of the island are initially suspicious of the strange visitor and refer to her as "the monster." However, they begin to change their minds when she adopts an orphaned gosling and they see not only her kind and gentle nature but also the benefits her intelligence and strength have on the entire island community. Roz doesn't have emotions exactly but "something close to it," and listeners are left to judge for themselves whether or not Roz experiences feelings. The story is full of important messages without being preachy and doesn't shy away from the harsh truths of being a wild creature. Although the story is sweet and simple, it has the potential to be a great springboard for more serious discussions about the environment and the role of technology in society. Narrator Kate Atwater skillfully transitions from Roz's robotic voice to a variety of animals voices, including lively ChitChat the squirrel and grumpy Rockmouth the fish. VERDICT The open-ended conclusion will leave listeners hoping for more stories about this lovely robot. ["This strong debut middle grade novel by the acclaimed picture book author/illustrator is a first purchase for most middle grade collections": SLJ 1/16 starred review of the Little, Brown book.]—Theresa Horn, St. Joseph County Public Library, South Bend, IN
