About the book…………

When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island.

 

She has no idea how she got there or what her purpose is – but she knows she needs to survive. After battling a fierce storm and escaping a vicious bear attack, she realises that her only hope for survival is to adapt to her surroundings and learn from the island’s unwelcoming animal inhabitants. As Roz slowly befriends the animals, the island starts to feel like home – until, one day, her mysterious past comes back to haunt her. From bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator Peter Brown comes a heart warming and action-packed novel about what happens when nature and technology collide.
