**This review is for audiobook version.  Find it on Libro.fm!**

Roz is back, and better than ever!  After being refurbished, our dear robot gets shipped off to work for the Shareef family on their dairy farm.  And since she’s no mere automaton, she proves to be an invaluable asset — not only to the cows she has befriended, but also to the Shareef children.  Yet despite her newfound friends, she still yearns to be wild and free...and most of all, she wants to be reunited with her goose son, Brightbill.  And so The Wild Robot Escapes!

Peter Brown has once again crafted an effortlessly charming tale, with the narrator adding an extra dose of saccharine goodness.  She reads with the soothing cadence of a mother reading a bedtime story, and the added ambiance/sound effects really draw you into the world.
