Spiderwick Chronicles' illustrator to create new series

9th March 2010

Spiderwick Chronicles' illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi has signed a publishing deal with Simon & Schuster UK which will see him create a new series of books.

The first instalment of The Search for WondaLa will be published this September.

Described as an original space adventure, the series revolves around the life of a young girl called Eva Nine, who has been raised in a subterranean home by a robot.

When her house is destroyed, she goes above ground for the first time in search of other human beings.

According to the book's publisher, the new series will be even more popular than the Spiderwick Chronicles.

Commenting on the new series, DiTerlizzi said: 'When I first conceived of the Spiderwick Chronicles, I imagined a story from the past coming forward to the present.

'In The Search for WondaLa, I am bringing a story back in time from the future. My vision is to create a 21st century fairy tale.'

The film adaptation of the Spiderwick Chronicles was nominated for the Best Art Direction in a Fantasy Film at the 2008 Academy Awards.
