12+: The Search for Wondla - Tony DiTerlizzi

Release Date: 01/10/10


Eva Nine was raised by the robot Muthr. But when a marauder destroys the underground sanctuary she called home, twelve-year-old Eva is forced to flee aboveground. Eva Nine is searching for anyone else like her. She knows that other humans exist because of a very special item she treasures ~ a scrap of cardboard on which is depicted a young girl, an adult, and a robot along with the strange word WondLa . Tony DiTerlizzi honours 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.


Known for his Spiderwick Chronicles work, Tony is coming to a world of his own with his recent outings. Here he brings his own take on Carol’s “Alice” which when blended with what feels like part “Fallout” part “Logan’s Run and wraps it all together with his own brand of Science Fiction that young readers will just love.

The book, when backed with Tony’s wonderful artwork will make for a fun reading, especially when you get to know the “in jokes” that pervade throughout.

All in a great adventure with a whole host of interesting characters that readers will want to hang out with. Add the secret computer pieces and you know that there’s some real magic about.
