“Narrator Kathleen McInerney delivers the story with a smile in her voice, echoing the novel’s tone, which remains gentle even as danger mounts. Roz’s robotic voice contrasts nicely with those of the more expressive animal and human characters. A panoply of background noises—mechanical whirs, cricket sounds, traffic, mooing, and more—paint an auditory picture for young listeners…The audiobook is accompanied by a PDF with Brown’s illustrations.”

Quotes

  • “The narrator, Kathleen McInerney, is adept at finding the warm pulse beneath Roz’s monotone delivery, and the array of old-school radio sound effects—clicks and squeaks and moos and honks—gives The Wild Robot Escapes a texture beyond words. Best of all, listeners get a bonus PDF of Brown’s spooky and evocative black-and-white illustrations.”

    — New York Times (audio review)
  • “Science fiction meets fantasy in this delightful sequel that gives readers a unique look into what technology could someday have in store. A must-buy for any middle grade collection.”

    — School Library Journal (starred review)
  • “In this stellar sequel, Roz powers up, repaired and with memories intact…Brown’s protagonists confront each in exhilarating and heart-stopping ways. Warmth and gentleness course through the novel, even as dangers emerge. Roz isn’t programmed for violence, and the narrator acts as an honest and reassuring friend who periodically breaks from storytelling to explain difficult truths to young readers.”
