Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Brown merely whetted readers' appetites for adventure with the exploits of kind, brave Roz in The Wild Robot (2016), particularly given the robot's dramatic departure from her island home. In this stellar sequel, Roz powers up, repaired and with memories intact, on a family farm, which she has been purchased to run. While she gives every appearance of being a normal robot, Roz constantly dreams of returning home. By speaking with animals, Roz gets word of her plight to a young goose named Brightbill, her adoptive son, and he flies to her rescue. With the help of the farmer's children, Roz and Brightbill flee, but their success is far from assured. Wolves, watery expanses, bustling cities, and old enemies the RECO robots all stand in their way, and Brown's protagonists confront each in exhilarating and heart-stopping ways. Warmth and gentleness course through the novel, even as dangers emerge. Roz isn't programmed for violence, and the narrator acts as an honest and reassuring friend who periodically breaks from storytelling to explain difficult truths to young readers. The novel's near-future setting gives rise to questions pertaining to the division between humans and machines as well as the idea that different isn't the same as defective. Though illustrations were unavailable for review, Brown's artistic talents should only elevate his exceptional conclusion to Roz's saga. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Wild Robot was a runaway success, so expect nothing less of its sequel.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the thought-provoking sequel to Brown's middle-grade debut, The Wild Robot, the adventure picks up as the resilient Roz (short for ROZZUM unit 7134) is repaired and shipped off to Hilltop Farm. With its domesticated animals and whirring machines, the dairy farm is a far cry from the remote island that the robot has come to call home. Though her owner, Mr. Shareef, and his two children come to embrace Roz as part of the family, she is desperate to make her way back to the island and her adopted gosling son, Brightbill. Seeking their help, Roz confides in the Shareef children that she is not like other robots and asks them, "Is being different the same as being defective?" The robot's odyssey-which brings her from the countryside to the big city, where she comes face-to-face with her designer-raises poignant quandaries about the nature of love and selfhood. While such questions remain unresolved, Roz emerges as a striking symbol of humanity for the very reason that she poses and ponders them. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 8-12.
