Recommended for: Grades 3-6

A robot named Roz washes ashore on an island when her shipping container gets tossed overboard in a storm at sea.  She studies her environment and learns from the animals how to communicate and survive in the wilderness.  She adopts a baby goose and eventually makes friends with the other animals of the island.  But one day, other robots come looking for her, and it is up to Roz and her island friends to decide her fate.  Can technology ever truly mesh with nature?  This story was exciting, interesting, unique, and touching.  It features some illustrations by the author, as well.
