Description

Soon to be a major 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.

    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.

    I absolutely love this book! It really puts into perspective the way that simple things can impact others particularly those who are different. A must read for any age group.

    I thoroughly ‘got’ this book! Kids notice others who are different. I got picked on a lot as a kid, and it really hurts! Maybe kids need more ‘humane’ studies to learn actively to be kinder to others, our society is so materialistic, we are all running flat out to keep up, but good human qualities have to be taught, along with the three ‘r’s? Love, true compassion and empathy are needed, its what helps us to be better and try harder...
