Publisher's Summary

A special movie tie-in edition of R. J. Palacio's #1 New York Times bestseller, now a major motion picture starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay, Daveed Diggs, and Mandy Patinkin.

Over six million people have fallen in love with Wonder and Auggie Pullman, the ordinary boy with the extraordinary face, who inspired a movement to Choose Kind.

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)

    "Mostly great!"

    I would recommend this book to 10+ year olds! I think that it should have been a bit more funny and entertaining but overall it was great! Also the voice actor should have had a deeper voice.

    "Brilliant story - wonderful performance"

    I'm so glad I read wonder. I think the story teaches us that people shouldn't get judged by how they look. Wonder is a book for kids who are scared of kids like August -- then they can see how the kid they are scared of feels. I was sad at first, but at the end I was happy. I wish I could talk to the author. I give both the story and the Audible performance 5 Stars. I will remember Wonder forever. It is soooooo good.

    Story
    "Good book, but annoying narrator."

    I had to stop listening after 4 minutes because of the narrator's annoying attempt at sounding like a young boy. I plan to return the book to Audible asap and purchase a Kindle copy.

    "Yummy!! So good!!!"

    If you’re in the mood for beautiful, heart warming, funny, and for just seeing certain of us at our very best, you need to meet Augie and the people that get to know him! Although written for kids, I believe I got much more out of it at 57!!!! Incredible story. And such an appropriate time.

    "What a Moving Story!"

    Absolutely loved this book. From beginning to end I couldn't wait to press play each day and find out what Auggie would overcome next or what kind of antics he and his friend were up to. R.J Palacio is a genius. August, his family and friends will steal your heart! must read!
