A Caldecott Honor winner begins a new series about a young girl forced to flee from her underground home with a treasured item--a scrap of cardboard on which is depicted a young girl, an adult, and a robot, with the word, "WondLa." Illustrations.
From the Publisher:
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.

Annotation:
Raised in total isolation by a loving robot named Muthr, 12-year-old Eva Nine sets off in search of other humans on her strange planet. Accompanied by an alien named Rovender and a telepathic water bear named Otto, she journeys through empty forests in search of other life. But the trio is pursued by a scary creature who wants to do terrible things to Eva, and the real adventure begins. With Tony DiTerlizzi's wonderful artwork and an unusual interactive webcam feature.
