Publisher's Summary

When a marauder destroys the underground sanctuary that Eva Nine was raised in by the robot Muthr, the 12-year-year-old girl is forced to flee aboveground. Eva Nine is searching for anyone else like her, for 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.

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.

Not bad, not that good

Interesting story that could use a lot more of everything. Terry hatcher did a good job with it though. The paper version has awesome artwork. The audio version is a little flat.

Annoying Narrator

I liked the content of the book but disliked the narrator. She reads the book so slowly and child like. I found it irritating to listen to. It was like she was reading to a child she thinks is incredibly unintelligent.

fascinating multi-platform book

Tony DiTerlizzi, author of the Spiderwick Chronicles, has created wonderful illustrations to highlight his richly imagined world. Each chapter begins with a double-page illustration that captured my interest. I actually listened to this as an audiobook, but each night found myself pouring over the illustrations in the book. In some places, I found the text did not provide quite enough description, as it assumed readers were also looking at the illustrations.

Teri Hatcher's narration captured the voice of Eva perfectly, combining an annoying Tween girl's attitude with her mother's restrictions, with her wonder and fear as she explored this new world. DiTerlizzi has also created an interactive visual map which you access online through WondLaVision. This intrigues some students, but I found it hard to break away from my reading habits, bring the book to the computer, and explore this world.

Awesome book!

Pretty easy to understand even though the lore seems complicated but it isn't. Great character development while they are all likeable. Very interesting and immersive lore. Plots were terrific, not boring at all. Overall an awesome and interesting book, and this is coming from someone who is very picky about novels, I can't think of anything bad about this book.
