The Search for WondLa
Title: The Search for WondLa
Author: Tony DiTerlizzi
Eva Nine survives in a bunker with her robot companion and teacher, Muthr. But nothing that she’s learned from Muthr prepares Eva for the destruction of her bunker and what she finds in the outside world. Accompanied by a colorful cast of characters, Eva embarks on a quest to find help. Is she the only surviving human left?
When a marauder destroys the underground sanctuary that Eva Nine was raised in by the robot Muthr, the twelve-year-year-old girl is forced to flee aboveground. Eva Nine is searching for anyone else like her, for she knows that other humans exist, because of an item she treasures—a scrap of cardboard on which is depicted a young girl, an adult, and a robot, with the strange word, “WondLa.” Tony DiTerlizzi honors traditional children’s literature in this totally original space age adventure: one that is as complex as an alien planet, but as simple as a child’s wish for a place to belong.
Breathtaking two-color illustrations throughout reveal another dimension of Tony DiTerlizzi’s vision, and, for those readers with a webcam, the book also features Augmented Reality in several places, revealing additional information about Eva Nine’s world.
