The Search for WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi
Pub. date: September 2010
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, 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.
Breathtaking two-color illustrations throughout reveal another dimension of Tony DiTerlizzi’s vision, and, for those readers with a webcam, the book also features Augmented Reality in several places, revealing additional information about Eva Nine’s world.
I recently won this from Sabrina at YA Bliss. Thanks, Sabrina! It sounds really interesting, and the illustrations look really good. It was a lot bigger than I thought it would be, and I just barely managed to fit it on my packed shelf (after removing the last of my three non-fiction books). I can't wait to read this! ^_^

Eclectically yours,
