Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Children's Titles for Ages 8-12, 2013

August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school - until now. He’s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances? R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and writing that shines with spare emotional power.

What the Critics Say

“Wonder is a book with such a big, wide heart - it shows how we are all fragile, imperfect, and perfectly beautiful creatures. A wonderful novel by a wonder of a writer!” (Julia Alvarez, author of Return to Sender, Before We Were Free, Finding Miracles, and the Tía Lola Stories)

    "Interesting but..."

    I liked listening to this book, and you learn so life lessons it it about what matters in life and how everyone has problems and stuff like that. It is a little childish because all the points are from the perspective of kids, but it's a little refreshing to go back in time like that. I wish it showed a perspective from his mother too.
    Performance was great.

    The main character didn't have any wants, or goals, so I couldn't really get into the book, and the performance didn't help matters.

    Story
    "The narrator for August absolutely killed this book."

    The story was ok for juvenile fiction, but I could not take the Marge Simpson delivery of the narrator. It made August seem babyish and contrived.

    "touching story- must read for all 5th graders"
    Would you listen to Wonder again? Why?

    I am already on my second listen. I liked it so much I am not letting all of my 5th grade students listen as it teaches them very important lessons about kindness, tolerance and bullying.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Summer...she was such a sweet and pure spirit.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the kids rallied behind Augie after the incident at the nature preserve.


    Any additional comments?

    The follow up trilogy "Augie and Me" is also very good...give you an indepth look at 3 of the most important characters in Augie's life.
