Oh my gosh, this is one of the best books we’ve read! Even, or maybe especially, in its simplicity.
Roz the robot gets tossed out of a ship in a crash landing and washes up on shore of a wild island. She knows only that she must survive.
Crazy weather, baby bears who attack her, uncontrollable tumbles down the mountainside, Roz encounters all of these and more. She even faces discrimination from the animals who treat her like a monster to be feared.
