It seemed like this project would never end. Dave dropped final illustrations into the book file, and the file was eventually sent to the printer. Dave and the production team reviewed proofs of the jacket and some of the interior art, and then worked with the printer to ensure that the final books would look just right. We took the extra step of proofing the art on the actual paper stock that would be used in the book.go site

And then things took a tragic turn. His passing devastated everyone. Alvina immediately took a leave of absence. All I wanted to do was curl up in a ball. But my publisher needed me to finish this book, once-and-for-all. At the end of a marathon project, I crawled across the finish line. On January 12, , I sent off the very last revisions. Years of studying and thinking and mapping and sketching and typing and illustrating and revising had finally come to an end.
My work on The Wild Robot was over. And by robotically studying her environment she learns everything she needs to know. She learns how to move through the wilderness, how to avoid danger, she even learns how to communicate with the animals. But the most important lesson Roz learns is that kindness can be a survival skill.

And she uses kindness to develop friends and a family and a peaceful life for herself. Until her mysterious past catches up with her. It took eight years, but I finally found an answer to the question that led me down this path. What would an intelligent robot do in the wilderness?

Thanks so much for sharing this process. The weird thing about this story is that, although other ideas have come and gone, it seems to be one that really wants to live. The visuals look amazing — i really love that sketch of the robot in the tree wow! I might even catch you on your tour. I had a great time and bought Wild Robot. This afternoon I gave it to my 11 yr old nephew who sat and read the whole thing in one sitting, looking kind of like a robot himself mechanically flipping pages.
His little brother is now reading it. Thank you!! Thank you for sharing your writing process with us! This will be so valuable to share with young writers…especially as they are learning that their first draft is not their best draft. I plan on sharing your process with 3rd-5th graders on Friday! Thank you being open and vulnerable, as I know it is probably hard to put yourself out for the whole world. Thank you again for your truly amazing story!
I read it with my mom and my little brother. We have a question. Are you going to write a sequel for The Wild Robot? I look forward to hear from you. Thanks George! Stay tuned! I read your book to my 6 year son and he absolutely loved it as did I. He gets so deeply involved in the characters in the books we read and he cried and cried when it ended. When I explained to him that when a book ends this way it often means a sequel is coming he was elated and wanted to buy it right NOW.
Thank you for this beautiful and haunting tale of a wild robot. He was in tears at the end, trying to figure out what to do with this new feeling of being both happy and sad at the same time. It is such a wonderfully complex and rich story on so many levels. And I love the fact that you urge us down an unfamiliar path to explore a relationship between machine and nature. There is a new humanism in this book, one that goes beyond the tired dichotomies of so much twentieth century thinking on technology. I really enjoyed reading and seeing the visuals of how The Wild Robot developed.
Thanks so much for sharing! Very inspiring!! I am so excited that now that my two boys are older they have more books of your to enjoy. Both of them are very artistic and I am sure they have been inspired at least in part by you! I can only dream they will grow up to create such wonderful works as you have.
He came upstairs to tell me that this was the best book he ever read — and that is saying something because he reads ALOT!! He also is a huge lover of robots since he was very small. So we are both hoping that you have this writing process down and will be writing alot more books in the future. We will be looking for them.
My six year old and I just finished reading The Wild Robot. We really enjoyed it!
Thank you for writing it. We are looking forward to the sequel!
