Summary

Tom on Robot Island

This fantastic story will have children so caught up that their imaginations will work overtime picturing a little boy who is swept away by a huge wave and who finds himself on Robot Island.

This audio story is the first in a two-part series written and narrated by Ann Twigg. The inspiration for this story came from her Grandson Tom, who was fascinated by robots.

All children love action stories and this tale is brimming with it. When Tom is washed up onto a desert island, he thinks he is alone. However, he soon discovers that robots live on this island. Initially he’s very frightened, but his fear soon turns into excitement as the robots seem pleased to see him. Tom soon realizes that the robots want to be his friend and are determined to help him escape the island and return home.

The Robots on the island do lots of funny things, which make Tom laugh. Children listening to these adventure books will also find them delightful because of the comical actions of the robot characters.

While many children might struggle to read books, audio books offer easy entrance into a new world at any time of the day. This audiobook is captivating and brilliantly narrated by Ann, who will have young children wanting to listen again and again.

Easy Listening

Got this for my 8 year old daughter and we enjoyed listening to it together. She isnt the most confident in new situations but she said at the end your next best friend is someone you haven't met yet.

Robots!!

My little girl isnt a massive fan of robots usually but she did enjoy this story. We listened to this in the car on a journey and it kept both of my girls attention for the drive. We listened at speed 1.5 as we found it a better pace. I guess it would be more soothing at bedtime if done on 1x speed.

A really enjoyable adventure

Ideal for reluctant readers to help develop creative and curious minds. This short story helps teach children the dangers of the sea and yet creates a thirst for adventure. It reminds us that we all appreciate our holidays and may not want them to end until we realise quite how much we appreciate our families and homes.

Tom is a confident brave character but he also openly admits his fears but courageously perseveres.

Without spoiling Tom’s secret adventure, the plot is in the title and Tom and the Robots successfully depend and appreciate one another.

A great holiday read, ideal for journeys or even as a class or bedtime read.

The plot based on ‘an Island’ is versatile so could lead to varied stories to develop each child’s writing and imaginations.

We enjoyed listening to the soothing narrative. Thanks!

A great adventure book, with a new twist

When a young boy called Tom gets stranded on an island, he finds out that it’s inhabited by robots. Tom becomes friends with them and goes on an adventure with them.
A perfect book to listen to at night right before bedtime.
