The Search for WondLa
The Search for WondLa | Tony DiTerlizzi
22 posts | 38 read | 16 to read
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.

I loved this one! It went in directions I wasn't expecting which was exciting. It wasn't exactly a cliffhanger but it did say it was the end of book 1. It turns out to be the first in a trilogy. I did not know that going in. I will probably seek out the others eventually. It does have some dark bits so might not be good for young children. (Depending on the child of course.)

I loved the Spiderwick Chronicles. Just started this one and I'm already intrigued.

Love love loved this book! I was expecting a fantasy and got a superb Science fiction instead and it was a wild ride! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This didn‘t really feel like a juvenile fiction book due to the intelligent story structure. 10/10 recommend to both child-adult.

TiffanyMichele Like the chapter before the last chapter I was like, “if it ends this way, I would be happy.” Thankfully it did not but still, that is an option if you end up not wanting to continue on. 5mo
TiffanyMichele At the end of the trilogy the first is still definitely my favorite 💘. But I would read them all to get the full story. 5mo

Great book! I can't wait to continue this series. Full of adventure and great characters. I wonder why they haven't yet made a movie from this book? I bet it would be fantastic.

4.5 🌟 Half physical Book, Half SCRIBD Ebook ➡️what a great book ! I really liked how Eva Nine acted like a normal tween with normal up and down feelings for her age- she had true feelings that are not always “happy go lucky” or perfect as so see in other tween reads. I could see this series as a good middle grade book club pick.

Picked this up without realizing it was the first in a series. Oops!

Eva Nine has been raised in an underground bunker with only MUTHR, the robot who takes care of her, for company. She‘s lonely and longing for adventure. She finally gets her wish to explore the land above ground, but not quite in the way she‘d hoped.

Excellent sci-fi/adventure for middle grade readers.

Breakfast with two very different sci-fi novels. I'm a sucker for both Space Opera and Wizard of Oz type adventures.

Otto has got to be my favorite character right now. I am getting a "Ludo from Labyrinth" vibe from him. I don't know what it is about him but I like him.

Been hearing/seeing great things about this series so I was eager to get my hands on it. One of the many benefits of working in a school & being friends with the librarian.

(Cross-posted from Instagram) I think it was @oceancitybooks who tagged me forever ago to post an illustrated book I own. Tony DiTerlizzi's MG WandLa series were designed to be a kind of Wizard of Oz for our times, in which a brave heroine, Eva 9, realizes that sometimes home... Changes. While the plot is pretty predictable, the artwork throughout all three books is truly breathtaking.
