Paperback WondLa

April 25, 2012

This week, The Search for WondLa was released in paperback. Its now at an affordable softcover price, and yet, still retains the plethora of 2-colored interior art – yay!

What do you think of the new jacket design? You can read about how it came about here. The book also sneaks a peek at chapter 1 of Hero for Wondla, due in stores May 8th.

Gearing up for the release of Hero, Simon & Schuster relaunched the Wondla website with a NEW augmented reality game where you have to fly Hailey’s airship in search of Eva Nine. To  play, simply download the augmented reality key, the required software, and zoom off to test your piloting skills. Have fun! I’ll see you on tour soon.

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
