The Lovereading4Kids comment

Creator of the best-selling Spiderwick series, Tony Diterlizzi has created a hugely imaginative world in which twelve year old Eva Nine sets out on a seemingly impossible quest with just a small picture with the word ‘WONDLA’ on it to guide her. Eva has never seen another human in all of her life. Now, travelling through a wondrous landscape she meets a host of unlikely characters as she searches for home and family. It’s a touching story and the imaginary world is brilliantly envisaged in words and additional pictorial material. Fans of the Spiderwick Chronicles will devour it as will anyone with a penchant for fantasy storytelling. This author is one of the best.

Synopsis

The Search for WondLa by Tony Diterlizzi

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.
