Now in paperback, Tony DiTerlizzi’s New York Times bestselling, richly illustrated modern classic. 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.

The disadvantage of being an adult who loves children's literature is that I perhaps analyze things too much. In searching for a defence, I remember all those books I read several times as a child and then re-read as an adult, only to find new layers for the more experienced reader.Because I'm now ...
Quattro stelline, perché il libro promette bene, ma la narrazione, nonostante la brevità di ciascun capitolo, in realtà ci mette parecchio ad avvincere. Io lo avrei visto meglio come un graphic novel.
Wow what a wonderful lovely book this was. I never expected it to be like this. The illustrations are beautiful and help with the story. :)In the end I even cried a bit, so much sadness and also happiness.I will be sure to buy book 2!
