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 of all shapes and sizes 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.
Introducing a host of remarkable characters that reinforce the importance of friendship, "A Hero for WondLa" has all the hallmarks of a classic book--of the future.

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.
