Wall-E meets Hatchet in this new illustrated middle grade novel from New York Times bestselling author Peter Brown.



It interested me because it was like a mystery and adventure and my favourite part was how she found a baby duck and asked the other ducks to see if it were their baby duck but it was unwanted so she took care of the baby duck.

A little slower to get into than other books but so glad that I persisted with it. Such a great story about adaptation and change and empathy. Really enjoyed it!

I like that the robot looked after the gosling and the robot was a good mum.

I like this book because its good and its really interesting and its a good book. I like Brightbill because he's a goose and I like geese. My favourite part of the book is when Roz saves Brightbill.

It was fascinating. I love the fact that Roz was the only robot that survived. I love the fact that he didn’t have no friends to start off with, but he soon made some along his path.

I liked how throughout the robot’s life she discovers more and more about the animals and how they live.

I like this book because it has action and it teaches you to be kind it shows you to keep moving never back down never give up. This is a chapter book it has 80 chapters so if you are up for the challenge i recommend it.

Love the juxtaposition of the natural world and the man made and how they work together. A great story to share or read alone.

I like the opposites of nature and technology coming together. The natural and the artificial.
