Tween Event | Tony DiTerlizzi: A Hero For Wondla
Tony DiTerlizzi
Tony DiTerlizzi, co-author of the Spiderwick Chronicles, visits with A Hero for WondLa, the sequel to his New York Times bestselling The Search for WondLa.

Before the end of The Search for WondLa, Eva Nine had never seen another human. But after a human boy named Hailey rescues her along with her companions, she couldn't be happier. Eva thinks she has everything she's ever dreamed of, especially when Hailey brings her and her friends to the colony of New Attica, where humans live in apparent peace and harmony. But all is not idyllic in New Attica, and Eva Nine soon realizes that something sinister is going on—and if she doesn't stop it, it could mean the end of everything and everyone on planet Orbona.

"Captured my heart. Can't wait for the sequel!"
—Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games

"An irresistable adventure. i can't wait to read the rest of the series."
—Rick Riordan, author of Percy Jackson and the Olympians series
