Peter Brown took 2 1/2 years to complete this book, making his middle grade debut. It is devilishly difficult to infuse a short simple book with deep resonance, harder still if the genre is science fiction. Perfect for as young as 1st or 2nd grade, the chapters are short and the sentences simple and the story compelling. However, The Wild Robot is also great for anyone, child or adult, who loves nature and fears for it. Pete Brown’s given young readers a gift, trusting them to explore the meaning of family, the adventure of adoption, the uses of technology, and the future of the natural world. A huge bonus: the pictures are terrific! 2nd grade – 5th grade. MM
