Book Lust: The Search for WondLa and A Hero for WondLa

BOOK 1: THE SEARCH FOR WONDLA

Eva Nine had never seen the actual sun before, or walked outdoors. In fact, she had never even seen another living person in all twelve years of her life. That changes when a marauding huntsman destroys her underground home and sends her fleeing for her life. She is desperate to find someone else who is like her, and a single clue gives her hope: a crumbling picture of a girl, a robot, an adult, and the word WondLa.

The Search for WondLa begins a trilogy whose imaginative text and breathtaking illustrations are sure to inspire dreams.

The Search is just the beginning…

BOOK 2: A HERO FOR WONDLA

The boy pilot of a battered airship flies twelve-year-old Eva Nine to the human city, New Attica. Eva is certain this will be the perfect start to a new life with her good friend, the Cerulean alien named Rovender Kitt – especially after the tragic loss of her robotic caretaker, Muthr. However, like many things on planet Orbona, appearances can be deceiving.

Eva encounters many new people in New Aticca, including a long-lost relative she was unaware of. And she uncovers the secrets of the sanctuaries, the HRP, and the history of her planet’s past. But then new questions arise, and the delicate spirit of life threatened once again. Was coming to New Attica the right decision?

A Hero for WondLa continues Eva Nine’s adventures in the series that inspired Rick Riordan to say, “Tony DiTerlizzi proves once again why he is a master of the imagination.”

AUTHOR: TONY DITERLIZZI

Tony DiTerlizzi is the visionary mind that conceived of the Spiderwick Chronicles. He has been creating books with Simon and Schuster for a decade. From fanciful picture books like The Spider and the Fly (a Caldeccot Honor) to young chapter books like Kenny and the Dragon, Tony has always imbued his stories with a rich imagination. His series the Spiderwick Chronicles (with Holly Black) has sold millions of copies worldwide and was adapted into a feature film.

Inspired by stories from the likes of the Brothers Grimm, James M. Barrie, and L. Frank Baum, The Search for WondLa is a fairytale for the twenty-first century.
