New York Times bestselling phenomenon Tony DiTerlizzi begins a new fantastical series.

In this first of a trilogy, Eva9, an eleven-year-old girl, has been raised in isolation on what appears to be an alien world. When her underground sanctuary is destroyed, she sets out on a journey to discover the truth of her origins and the planet she is learning to call home. Written with Tony DiTerlizzi’s penchant for the weird, The Search for WondLa pays homage to classic literature as it chronicles one girl’s exploration of a world that is both foreign and familiar.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lillian | 2/18/2014

    " This is one of the best middle readers (9 to 12) books I've read in a while. I love the illustrations. In a way it felt like I was reading the movie Spirited Away, which is one of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jeff | 2/5/2014

    " My genre of a book--sci-fi. This book was great until the very end, which I thought was just so so. I thought the explanation for where WondLa comes from was kind of lame. "

    " An imaginative, adventurous book. Mr. DiTerlizzi's captivating illustrations makes it a feast for the eyes. I needed more character development and never felt completely pulled into the world, though it was an enjoyable read. "

    " Came across this in Salem Church Library. I needed a book for a young girl I tutor and it had to be 400 or more pages (not normally the best way to search for a book). This book is a winner! Parents and I AND the student really enjoyed it. It's fantasy, adventure, mystery - all wrapped together in a great package! Two things that grabbed me about this book: first, the characters are very strange and different; second, the author uses wonderful vocabulary. There were words to look up and long, 4-syllable words with which to practice spelling. Regarding the plot, a young girl is searching for other humans while being chased by strange, menacing creatures. She's aided by an Omnipod, similar to today's IPhone, but better. It displays 3D holograms. The author has provided intriguing, two-page green and gray illustrations at the beginning of each of the 42 chapters. He also uses a special "key" to open an interactive 3D map, for those who have access to a computer with webcam. This book is the first of a three-volume series. "
