This is the first installment in a new trilogy by one of the authors of the popular Spiderwick Chronicles. With beautiful illustrations, The Search for WondLa features a resourceful heroine who becomes increasingly more confident in her own competence outside the shelter of the sanctuary she called home for twelve years. The story offers a subtle message about questioning the omnipotence of computers. Eva learns that computers and humans alike need to continually "reprogram" themselves to adjust to new situations and challenges. There is some mild fantasy violence and Eva is repeatedly attacked by an alien huntsman, who kills and butchers animals in front of her. The huntsman supplies hundreds of animals for the Queen, who has them preserved and displayed in a museum. Muthr is broken beyond repair, and although she was not human, Eva grieves the loss of the robot who loved and raised her. Readers can go online to play WondLa-themed games, and for those with a webcam, the book has a feature called Augmented Reality, which brings Eva Nine's world to life.
