Reviews

We loved The Wild Robot. It's a story that anyone of any age can enjoy, if you approach it in the right spirit and are prepared to lose yourself in what is ultimately an uplifting campfire tale * Starburst Magazine *
The Wild Robot has all the pathos and grace of The Iron Giant or a Studio Ghibli animation. It is nonetheless its own thing, a delicate, touching tale of survival, friendship and family * Financial Times *
a strikingly illustrated novel... a beautiful story in so many ways, with a lot of depth about what it means to be a parent, to be part of a community, to be different, to make mistakes, to care for others and to overcome others' distrust * Juno Magazine *
A boldly original and beguiling wild adventure * Piers Torday *
This is such an odd, original, thought-provoking and heartwarming tale. The book is a meditation on what it is to be human and, at the same time, an incredibly fun adventure. Readers will lose their heart to Roz and it's a truly gripping read. The illustrations are also enigmatic and beautiful. This is really a perfect children's book that stays with you long after finishing; a modern-day classic in the making * Booktrust *
A heartfelt story for ages six-plus about how even the oddest of us can find friends - we need Peter Brown to tell his fellow Americans how what seems strange and threatening can turn into love and joy * New Statesman *
A moving and captivating tale about friendship and emotion, it is also beautifully illustrated by the author * WRD Magazine *
An incredible story, encompassing a brilliant mash up of nature and technology * A Little But A lot *
Robot sentience meets maternal love in the renowned author-illustrator Peter Brown's first foray into writing for older children, The Wild Robot (Piccadilly). Reminiscent of Ted Hughes's novel The Iron Man, with some of the curious, timeless quality of William Steig's Abel's Island. * Times Literary Supplement *
Peter Brown, who illustrates as well as writes, offers a fable of friendship and family, with a subtle, embedded message about the need for a balance between technology and nature * Financial Times *
'I really enjoyed reading the Wild Robot. Different parts of the story came to life and seemed real.' -- May, aged 8 * Simon Mayo's Books of the Year Podcast *
