Kid’s Book Review: The Search for Wondla Book 1 by Tony Diterlizzi


There were a lot of illustrations with this story and they were all drawn by the author. It was fun to read a novel with with so much visual description as it really helped me to imagine this really vivid world.

Eva Nine grew up in a sanctuary with ‘Multi Utility Task Help Robot 06’ (MUTHR). The sanctuary was attacked and she was forced to leave which brought her on an adventure trying to figure out the world. If I told you any more, I feel that it would ruin the book. It seems that any details given about this book would take away from the twists and turns that make this story truly awesome.

I give this book 10/10 as I thoroughly enjoyed it cover to cover. This is a part of a series so I am excited to read the next book.

Kid taught a class!

Kid has read most of the books about dragons at the library, and by doing so made a friend with a librarian who is also a fellow dragon lover. Inspired by their conversations, Kid made a dragon sculpture for her out of Sculpey and gave it to her as a gift. She showed the teen events coordinator at the library who then invited Kid to teach a class.

Above is the collection of all the dragons that were made in his class. It was a lot of fun, and because of teaching this class he was encouraged to teach a class at the local art store which is a paid gig! Also, someone commissioned him to make a dragon for them. I am a proud mama, and proud of the people at the library for encouraging my son to pursue his interests.
