WI – The Battle for WondLa Signing

TonyDiTerlizzi

Tony DiTerlizzi, author of The Battle for WondLa, appears at Boswell Book Company on Tuesday May 13, 2014 at 7:00 pm!

Press Release:

The New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi presents the highly-anticipated conclusion to the WondLa Trilogy, The Battle for WondLa. “An irresistible adventure” according to Percy Jackson & The Olympians author Rick Riordan, this middle-grade fantasy is perfect for ages ten and up with “wonder aplenty” in what Publisher’s Weekly calls “…[a] tense, chase-filled journey to engage young readers, [with] twists for adult fans of Twilight Zone–styled stories.”

When a marauder destroys the underground sanctuary that Eva Nine was raised in by the robot Muthr, the twelve-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. Eva Nine is at her bravest in the final book in this New York Times bestselling trilogy.

About the Author: Tony DiTerlizzi is a New York Times bestselling author and illustrator who has created books with Simon & Schuster for more than a decade. From his fanciful picture books like Jimmy Zangwow’s Out-of-this-World Moon Pie Adventure, Adventure of Meno (with his wife, Angela), and The Spider & The Fly (a Caldecott Honor book), to chapter books like Kenny and The Dragon, Tony always imbues his stories with a rich imagination. His middle grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles (with Holly Black), has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film, and has been translated in more than thirty countries.
