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)

    "Best Book Ever!!!!!!"

    It was very touching. I couldn't stop reading it. If you haven't read this book, then you need to replace read it. It teaches valuable lessons that you need to be a great person. After I read it, I said to myself, I am going to read this ten more times. I hope you enjoy Wonder as much as I did.

    "a must for all"
    Any additional comments?

    This book moved me. As a person, mother and teacher of small children. This book teaches us how to really judge a person. It teaches all of us what it means to be a good person, to be a good friend. I loved this quote: "I think there should be a rule everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their lives". This is only one of the many great quotes in this outstanding book about so many things...bravery, family, love, friendship, self confidence and strength under pressure (just to name of few). All kids need to read this book with their parents and then they need to sit down and discuss it together....you and your children will be better for it!!! 5 stars!

    "Some books just leave with a desire to be better!"

    Cruelty is one of the most difficult things to watch but love and inclusivity can overcome it all!

    "What an added Pleasure !!"
    Where does Wonder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I read this book to my class every year ! The audio book is amazing and so happy it was an extra thing to have !


    What other book might you compare Wonder to and why?

    Freak the Mighty is something that reminds me of Wonder, but there really is NO book that compares to this AMAZING story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they fight in the field and come together !!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Makes me laugh and cry !

    "A shareable book"

    It was a bit irritating at first listening to August's voice but as I got into the story it all made sense and seemed fitting. I would like to share this book with others.

    "Wonder-ful!!! READ THIS BOOK!!!"

    Written from the perspective of a handful of different people whose lives are interwoven, this book was like five different books in one. I have read lots of books: paper, Kindle and audio. This book stands among a handful that truly made an impression. I laughed out loud and wept with joy. It's title fits: it is a Wonder.
