One of KCLS's "Mock Newbery" nominees. Kids in the SES classroom I visited were passionate about this one. A sweet story.
A robot washes ashore on an island, where she must adapt to life in the wild and befriend the native animals. A thought-provoking choice for family or classroom reading. Ages 8 - 12.
After a robot washes up on an island, she must befriend the wild animals while taming the elements which will determine her fate. Robot battle supreme!
Grades 3-5. The animals on the island are frightened of Roz the robot, who ended up there after a shipwreck, but they grow to love her after experiencing her practical and kind nature. Illustrated chapter book. Great as a family read-aloud.

SummaryAdd a Summary
At the beginning of the story a hurricane came and sank a cargo ship loaded with robots. Only five crates survived the hurricane. After a while they reached land, four crates broke, and one survived. Then some otters came and played a little with the broken parts, broke open the last crate, and turned on the robot inside.
Later in the story, Roz (the robot) breaks her foot and has to make another. Winter comes to the island and it is the coldest winter of all. She makes more homes for the other animals. A lodge burns down and they put it out with snow. Winter is over and spring comes again.
At the end of the story three reco's come to retrieve Roz. They are killed, but Roz is hurt. She goes to the mainland to get repairs and then come back to her home. He takes the Reco's jet to get to the mainland. They are warned that more Reco's will come to retrieve Roz and bring him to the mainland.
I am 9 years old. I thought this book should be rated a 4/5 and is for 6-15 year olds.
