Waiting on Wednesday (11): The Search for WondLa

The Search for WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi.

Published by: Simon And Schuster Children's Books.
Format: Hardback.
Released: 1st October 2010.

"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."

This book looks incredible. And it sounds it too! You only have to look at the cover to see that it is beautifully illustrated. And it features some very cool new technology! Go to to find out more about augmented reality, where you can hold certain pages up to your webcam and watch scenes and images from the book unfold before your very eyes on your computer screen! How cool does that sound?! Cannot wait to check it out for myself!

  1. Great WoW pick. The Search for Wondla sounds like an excellent read. I saw a teaser(vlog) over at The Book Rat a little while back and the book went right onto my wish list.
