The Search for Wondla is the first in a new trilogy from Tony DiTerlizzi, the illustrator of The Spiderwick Chronicles. It is always difficult to follow up a huge success like Spiderwick, but I think he has done it! This story is so much fun, with loads of action and danger.

Eva Nine has never been on the surface of her planet. She has never seen the sun or walked outside, and has never even seen another human being. She has spent all of her twelve years living underground with Muthr, her guardian robot. After a frightening invasion of her home, Eva escapes to the surface and begins an adventurous journey to find others like herself.

The Search for Wondla is an imaginative story complete with beautiful illustrations. As a matter of fact, you can view the illustrations using "Wondla-Vison" (augmented reality) and explore an interactive map. The search begins at

The Search for WondLa

- Hardcover

by Tony Diterlizzi - The Search for WondLa # 1 (series) - $19.99 - Add to Cart

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.
