    1. This book makes me wish I could draw. From the co-creator of Spiderwick Chronicles, The Search for Wondla is a fabulous cross between sci fi and fantasy. A young girl, raised in an underground bunker by a motherly robot, is suddenly forced to the surface and finds that the world is radically changed -- if it's even the planet she thought it was. The story is fascinating by itself, but the illustrations add a whole new dimension to the adventure. Highly recommended.

    2. “Welcome to the real world, Mother Robot, a beautiful and dangerous place. Now you can truly begin to live.” You can find this review and all of my other reviews at Novel Descent Thanks for the support!I was completely engrossed in this book from the start. The characters, the world, the illustrations - all had me wanting to know and explore more. The Search for Wondla is about a young human girl, Eva Nine, who is 12 years old and has been brought up in an underground sanctuary by her robot [...]

    3. Oh. My. God. I don't even have the words to describe this WondLa-ful book! This book is steeped in emotion of being alone in the world, adventure, and friendship. This is like a soup, its ingredients include; a teaspoon of The Wizard of Oz, a drop of Treasure Planet, and a dash of Avatar (with the whole nature thing, and of course Rovee being a blue creature). Oh, and a bit of Journey to the Center of the Earth for good measure.The plot is completely original, well done to Tony's imagination! An [...]

    4. Eva Nueve es una niña de doce años que siempre ha vivido en un refugio subterráneo, con la única compañía de Madr, una robot a cargo de su crianza. La pequeña pasa sus días estudiando el mundo exterior y cómo sobrevivir en la naturaleza, para ello cuenta con sofisticadas simuladores y aparatos tecnológicos. Cuando se ve obligada, por un incidente, a salir al exterior descubre que el mundo no es la misma Tierra que ella ha estudiado y deberá adaptarse a este extraño terreno hostil en [...]

    5. Take a little bit of “The Wizard of Oz” and “Alice in Wonderland”, toss in some “Star Wars” and “Planet of the Apes”, mix well by a talented writer and you’ll have an idea of this book. From the fantastic mind of Tony DiTerlizzi, creator of the Spiderwick Chronicles, this is the first of a three part series.The story concerns a twelve-year-old girl, Eva Nine, who has been raised in an underground sanctuary by a robot named Muthr. When a vicious hunter destroys the sanctuary in [...]

    6. One Sentence Review: I don't think anyone's going to argue that the art is fantastic here, but the story just can't seem to catch up to the premise.

    7. I would have liked more consistency throughout this story. I think the concept is wonderful, though perhaps a bit reminiscent of "Planet of the Apes", and the environment is imaginative and fun. It would be a fantastic romp for 8-13 year-olds.Personally, however, I was disappointed by the shifting nature of both Eva Nine's and MUTHR's characters and not in a way that showed they were growing and becoming new people. Rather, I felt they had multiple personalities and I never knew which one I'd be [...]

    8. Let me begin by encouraging anyone who is thinking about downloading the e-book edition of this story to go out and buy the real thing. In hardback. Trust me, it's worth it. A book this beautiful is meant to be printed and bound for art-enthusiasts and sci-fi/fantasy nerds everywhere to drool over.Secondly, I'd like to congratulate DiTerlizzi on producing such a brilliant, original children's story. Not only is each chapter of this book beautifully illustrated by the author, the story itself suc [...]

    9. Eva Nueve nunca había salido a la superficie hasta que un accidente ocurre y ella se ve obligada a sobrevivir en un mundo que no había visto antes y que ella conoce como su planeta Tierra pero cuando la realidad la golpea se da cuenta de que no hay nada que ella haya estudiado antes con ayuda de la tecnología, no reconoce ningún ser vivo, ninguna planta, ningún árbol// La historia para mí, al principio la sentí lenta, y creí que no me gustaría pero las cosas se ponen muy padres pasando [...]

    10. Ay, no sé, no sé este libro no me terminó de convencer. Creo que lo sentí demasiado infantil y demasiado lento, como que realmente no pasaba mucho y pasaban páginas y páginas y en fin. En Busca de WondLa cuenta la historia de Eva Nueve, una chica pequeña que ha vivido toda su vida bajo tierra con la única compañía de Madr, una robot encargada de su bienestar. Eva nunca ha conocido a otro humano, pues aparentemente están viviendo en un futuro en el que todo ha cambiado. Madr y Eva sabe [...]

    11. WondLa = Wonderful? Meh, not so much. I had a really hard time rating this book about Eva Nine, possibly the last human girl alive in an alien world. There were a lot of things I really enjoyed about The Search For WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi: the main character, Eva, is very engaging, as is her "Muther" robot and many of the creatures she meets on her quest to find other humans and to escape the evil huntsman, Beesteel. The story started as strong as any I've ever read. I recall--explicitly--sayi [...]

    12. This book was one of my favourite books! I loved the whole fairy tale story going with it and I think they should make a second one! It was amazing and had little grammar errors. I enjoyed this book because I love to read fairy tales so I think that those who enjoy fairy tales would enjoy this book. I recommened this book for those who like adventure and fairy tales.Rating: 7.5/10Parental Rating: PG

    13. Freundschaft und Familie muss nicht immer an Blutsbande gebunden sein. Das zeigt Tony DiTerlizzi in »Die Suche nach WondLa«, dem Auftakt seiner SciencefantasyReihe »The Search for WondLa«.Eva Neun lebt als einziger Mensch in einem unterirdischen Refugium. Ihre einzige Gesellschaft sind ihre Kuscheltiere und der Roboter Mudrr, welcher sie wie eine Mutter aufzog und nun ihr Überlebenstraining überwacht. Als das Refugium plötzlich von einer fremden Kreatur überfallen wird, muss Eva an die O [...]

    14. ***may contain a minor spoiler without revealing any plot information***My 8 year old and I really enjoyed reading this book together combined the elements of science fiction that I like; being plunked down in a completely different realm and trying to figure it out with the character, some clues and connection to biology and astronomy. This is good dystopian fiction for those who may find the genre dark, or for younger kids who might be interested in the genre but not ready for the YA/Adult the [...]

    15. The illustrations are amazing! However the story didn't really capture me, I enjoyed it, but didn't love it. I will probably read the next book anyway.

    16. Este fue otro libro que adquirí por instinto, después de enamorarme de él en una librería. ¿Cómo no hacerlo, con esa sinopsis y esas ilustraciones maravillosas? Parecía tener todos los ingredientes para que la historia me encantara. Y bueno, fue más o menos así. Más o menos. Es muy fácil convencerme de leer algo si me dicen «che, Sofi, esta historia tiene fantasía Y ciencia ficción». Ahí me hago pichí y salgo a buscar el libro, básicamente. Sépanlo.La historia comienza en el S [...]

    17. Publicity for this book calls it a fairy tale for the 21st century and DiTerlizzi has said he was inspired by the stories of James M. Barrie and L. Frank Baum. I can see a lot of Baum’s influence in this story of a young girl named Eva Nine who has to make her way through a strange new world to find what she is searching for, in this case the secret behind ‘WondLa,’ a damaged panel she has found containing lettering that appears to spell out the word ‘WondLa.’ The panel also contains a [...]

    18. Man, no way was I gonna let this book sit indefinitely on my currently-reading shelf next to The Talisman and Sherlock Holmes - it sure looked like that for awhile though. Exams kept me book-deprived for over two weeks and then the past week I've been preoccupied with getting myself in Ramadan mode.But like I said in my updates, I didn't really have much of an incentive to continue reading this book other than to just finish it, because this book was just kinda meh.I mean don't get me wrong, I t [...]

    19. What if you learned that you are the only human living in the world? Your mother is a robot, and you've never left your peaceful sanctuary, and never seen the sun before. Until some unknown creature invades you house and you need to escape? Well, this is exactly what happened to Eva Nine, and her Muthur. Eva and her Muthur must escape from the invader, Besteel to kidnap her and take her somewhere. Escaping her sanctuary, there she meets a blue, indigo eyed creature with cat-fish-like whiskers. H [...]

    20. Wow! Who knew Tony DeTerlizzi could pull off a sci-fi!It looked interesting enough sitting on a shelf at Barnes & Noble, but I don't read sci-fi; definitely not my main genre of interest. However, the illustrations are beautiful enough to make anyone want to read it.Man, I am so glad I did. I almost stopped and left it in the middle, but the adventure the characters are experiencing keeps the fascination up, and the writing, though fairly simple, doesn't lag. The characters in general are a [...]

    21. Eva Nine has never ventured out of her underground Sanctuary where she lives alone with her robot caretaker, Muthr. When she is finally forced out of her home by a strange sentient life form unlike anything in her Sanctuary’s database, she discovers that the world she live on is unlike the one she had expected. Instead of Earth trees and animals, she is faced with the dangerous creatures and aliens of Orbana. Hunted by one of the aliens while befriended by others, Eva sets out from her destroy [...]

    22. This would have to be the absolute best book I have ever read, and that's saying something because I have been reading books since I was two years old. This is a wonderful, spellbinding, and creative novel written by the author of the Spiderwick Chronicles. The book takes place in the future, and it is about a 12 year old girl named Eva Nine, who has lived in an underground sanctuary her whole life, never having seen another human being, with only her protective robot guardian, M.U.T.H.R.(That s [...]

    23. Tengo sentimientos encontrados con éste libro y no estaba muy seguro de cuantas estrellas ponerle. La primera mitad del libro se me hizo medio aburrida, pero la parte final me pareció buena.Lo que no me gustó:- Como es un libro de fantasía/ciencia ficción a veces es muy difícil imaginarte lo que el autor te esta describiendo.-Tiene muchas descripciones.-En algunas partes esta aburrido.Lo que me gustó:-Las ilustraciones están HERMOSAS. Me gustaron mucho. Te dan una idea del mundo de Orbon [...]

    24. Last night's trip I tried to collect things that would make for good read-alouds. We've been on hiatus since A Christmas Carol, but apparently the kids think it is time to resume. I missed it too.Eva does something astoundingly dumb and then she encounters an oracle. I'm tired of prophecies, too tired to see if Eva realizes and regrets her stupidity.Library copy.

    25. I first read Search for Wondla nearly a year before my gullbladder (that almost killed me along with a bleeding ulcer) operation, when my fibro combined with all my other problems was making me particularly miserable, and I had yet to be diagnosed. Books are always more special to me when read during a difficult period in my life, and I'll always hold this series dear.

    26. Story Title: 1/5 (Try saying "WondLa" just try it everyone I encountered who tried to read the cover or spine tripped over this word, it's not that it's difficult just annoying.)Plot: 4/5Characters: 2/5Ending: 4/5Synopsis:Eva has lived her entire life underground with her robot, Muthr. While running through countless tests to prepare her for the world above, it becomes all Eva can think about being outside. One day, she gets her wish but not in the way she had hoped. A Hunter attacks their sanct [...]

    27. I just don't get itI really wanted to love this book and it gets such amazing reviews from literally everyone, but I didn't connect with this story at all.Part of my problem was that I found Eva's reactions and behavior completely unbelievable. If she had been raised by robots in a bunker, she would not a) talk and act so human, and b) she would not be so relaxed about leaving the bunker which has been her entire world her whole life!There were such deep psychological issues that could have been [...]
