Review: The Wild Robot

The Wild Robot
The Wild Robot by Peter Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jeez I enjoyed this book! Light and easy reading, fun characters, and a willingness to address deeper topics than you’d expect. The format takes some getting used to (ultra-short chapters that sometimes made me feel anxious – like I was racing through the story too quickly), but once you acclimate, it evens out. The ending is a little unsatisfying, but nothing to spoil the overall experience.

– Favorite thing: The images the book invokes, aided by the adorable drawings. How could you not love imagining what a robot holding a fish would look like? You couldn’t.

– Least favorite thing: The ending, which is not really a conclusion, but sets up another book. Didn’t ruin anything about the reading experience – I just wanted more finality.

– Overall: Strong recommend
