Book Review: The Search for WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi

Jun 18, 2012

Eva Nine and her alien pals search for more of the human race in Tony DiTerlizzi’s amazing book, The Search for WondLa. Kidzworld has the book review.

Sprung From Below

Eva Nine has spent her entire 12 years of her life in an underground sanctuary with her robot guardian Muthr as her only companion. But when a dark creature named Besteel destroys her home, she’s forced to go aboveground. For the first time, Eva Nine experiences the wind on her face and the sun on her skin. But there’s no shortage of dangers above, especially when her omnipod - a portable mini-computer - can’t identify any of the native creatures.

The Human Race

On her run from Besteel, Eva Nine meets a friendly creature named Rovender and an armor-clad behemoth named Otto, who communicates with no one but her. Both agree to protect Eva Nine as she journey's to save Muthr from her sanctuary’s destruction and search for more human beings.

The Enemy

Meanwhile, Besteel is still hot on her trail. Will Eva Nine be able to evade Besteel long enough to find more of her kind? Or will her search for the human race prove impossible?

The Bottom Line

The Search for WondLa is the first book in Tony DiTerlizzi's science fiction series for middle grade readers. It is a fantastic adventure filled with wonderful images, loveable characters and a magical world. Check back for our review of the second book in the WondLa series, A Hero for WondLa.

I still am pretty bad at this, so I'm quick to give up, but you've actually successfully changed my opinion on this, so props to you. Well, that's what I get for messing with the master. I really appreciate the compliments, thank you (: You're not bad at this. You gave a good defense for your case. If your estimates were correct, then I don't think I could have presented them any better. Just make sure to always check the facts. Many people have negative views of Trump because they don't do this. For instance, millions in this country think that he called Mexicans criminals, when in reality it's always been about illegal immigrants. For me, fact checking is how I know exactly what Trump said, so that I can know exactly whether or not I agree with him.
