Publisher Description

Now an Oscar nominated film starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay.

'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.'

Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go.

Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?

WONDER is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

Excuse me, I'm crying, give me a moment

Wonder is a heartwarming book, it touches my heart, the way that Palicio showed the book from diffrent peoples perspectives made you see August's world in a diffrent way. Honestly, it explains what all humans should be like, kind, loving, brave, caring creatures that not only care for them selves.

AMAZING

Simply an amazing story incredibly well written. It was a pleasure to read and share with my kids - 5 and 8 - knowing it would leave them with wonderful insights into social justice and good living.
