Marvelous Thinkers Welcome
Aspen Elementary School 2018/2019
We all fell in love with The Wild Robot last year and were sad to see it end. Dry those tears because Peter Brown is no longer leaving us hanging. The Wild Robot Escapes is set to release in October (just wait a little longer...) With a 5 star review, here's what Goodreads.com is saying about it:
The sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Wild Robot, by award-winning author Peter Brown
Shipwrecked on a remote, wild island, Robot Roz learned from the unwelcoming animal inhabitants and adapted to her surroundings--but can she survive the challenges of the civilized world and find her way home to Brightbill and the island?
From bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator Peter Brown comes a heartwarming and action-packed sequel to his New York Times bestselling The Wild Robot, about what happens when nature and technology collide
Newbery Honor Book, The War That Saved My Life has a sequel too. If you fell in love with this one, like I did, you are probably itching for some more action. This one is also out on shelves in October and I just can't wait to get my hands on it. Ada, the main character has to learn to adjust to her new home and new life with her club foot surgically fixed. The last one was a tear jerker, pulling at all the hear strings, so we shall see if this one follows cue.
