Wonderful

Both my kids (ages 3 and 6) have loved both Wild Robot stories: got us through two long car journeys. Worth every penny. Something about the stories and the way they are delivered is captivating.

Excellent Kid’s Book

I loved this book. Imaginative and well written. The narration was great.

The kids kept asking to listen to it in the car and before bed.

Highly recommend.

Outstanding story, reading, and production

I teach robotics at the university level, and also do a lot of K-12 outreach. The technical accuracy is stunning, and this book together with its predecessor also tells a thoroughly gripping story. The reading is marvelous, and I love the sound effects. They are subtle, but perfectly introduced. About halfway through listening I was gifted the hardcover set, which will take a place on my bookshelf reserved for the best treasures that I am sure will be admired for years to come.

Not just for children

This tale is very addictive. After finishing the first book, I got the second. I’ve only done this one other time in all my years of enjoying Audible books. I would strongly suggest that the first book be read in order to understand, fully, the second.
Congratulations on two fully fleshed out stories, characters and well thought out sequencing.

A heartfelt beautiful adventure. I recommend it!

I loved this book! I listen to the first book and had to listen to the second one. This was a beautiful adventure story, and some parts made my heart break with some sad parts. The only part that I didn't like was that I had the book with me, so I was following along with it. Some words were taken out from the audio version,and it was a little confusing. Other than that I loved the story. The music was fantastic too. I truly recommend it to anybody who wants an adventure!

We had to have it!

My son picked the first book (The Wild Robot) to listen to through the library, and he loved it. When he finished, he immediately asked if there was a second. I looked at our library ap and found that there was, in fact, this book. When I told him that there would be about a two week wait for the hold, he informed me he couldn't wait that long. Being an avid reader myself, I took pity on him and threw a credit his direction.

He really enjoyed this book as well. He loved the adventure, the large cast of characters, and the idea that this robot was overcoming her struggles. We have now listened to it multiple times, and he has enjoyed it each time.

The narration is well done and fitting of a robot. We are hoping for a third.

Such a great audible book

We absolutely adore the story of Roz and
Brightbill. The story starts out right where book 1 left off and we are anxious to hear how our robot is doing and wondering if she will ever get back to her island and we find new characters to fall in love with along the way. Truly, one of our favorite stories of all time.

An amazing series

This book was actually bought for my daughter. I read over the information for the first book and on a whim picked it up. I adored the first book, consumed it in one sitting, then immediately found the second in audio form. I am very happy my whims lead me to these books. They are truly just beautiful and amazing. A must read for young adults and adults! Read it with your child. Wonderful!!
