This is book number 1 in the Search for Wondla (Paperback) series.
Inspiring wonder with an imaginative new trilogy, Caldecott Honor winner Tony DiTerlizzi creates a unique and timeless story. Forced to flee her underground sanctuary, twelve-year old Eva Nine, with the help of her Multi Utility Task Help Robot (a.k.a. MUTHR), sets out on a quest to find others of her kind. By holding up special illustrations to a computer’s webcam, readers can explore an interactive map through WondLa-Vision (a.k.a. augmented reality). Watch the story come alive!— Brandi S.
Now in paperback, Tony DiTerlizzi's New York Times" bestselling, richly illustrated modern classic.
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: 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."
Breathtaking two-color illustrations throughout display another dimension of the tale, and readers with webcams can also view Augmented Reality that reveals additional information about Eva Nine's world. 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.
