The Wild Robot (LITTLE BROWN FOR YOUNG READERS)
Tuesday • April 5 • 7pm
U District store
The recipient of numerous awards for his bestselling children's books, author and illustrator Peter Brown makes the jump into middle-grade fiction with The Wild Robot. When robot Roz first opens her eyes, she finds herself on an unfamiliar island. Programmed to survive and help others, she sets out to understand and figure out how to interact with the world around her, and soon turns the animals who fear her into friends. But amid harmony, there's still conflict. And Brown uses that dichotomy to thoughtfully explore questions about the environment, the role of technology, and what it means to be alive. As the thought-provoking book comes out, we're delighted to welcome Brown to share its uplifting story with us at this reading, signing, and book launch party.
Peter Brown is the author and illustrator of many bestselling children's books, including My Teacher Is a Monster (No, I am not.), Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, Children Make Terrible Pets and The Curious Garden. He is the recipient of a Caldecott Honor for Creepy Carrots!, two E.B. White Read Aloud Awards, a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book award, and a Children's Choice Book Award for Illustrator of the Year.
