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)

    "Wonderful"

    This tale takes the reader on a journey that we all will face or have faced in some way and does it honestly and with hope. Hope doesn't disappoint but gives us wings as Emily Dickinson stated in her poem.

    Story
    "Excellent in the Everyday"

    This book was on my priority list for far too long, but with the release of the movie I wanted to ensure I had read the book before I saw the movie. There is no deep drama or suspense that turns the story of its head, but the author didn't need to add unnecessary drama.

    The majority of the book is written from the pov of 5th grade student August, and the narrator does an excellent job of being that young man, with all the struggles of entering a new environment well strained through his voice. The parts of this story I enjoyed the most were the everyday events that happen in any loving family, The silent conversations between a couple held in the presence of their children, the need to be at two places at the same time when family members encounter the dramas normal in growing up, and so on. This book will be a classic for many years to come.

    "Wonderful Book - Tissues should be on standby!"

    I loved listening to this book during my commute over the course of the week. Each story line was wonderfully told and easy to attach to. My son and niece started this book and I truly cannot wait till they finish it to talk with them about the whole story.

    "Touching story everyone should read"

    I really enjoyed this book, it was heartwarming and heart-wrenching at the same time. As a special education teacher, I know the cruelty of children, especially in middle school. I love how this story turns that around into a teaching moment on the values of kindness and acceptance. Our world can use more books like this one that help us all see the true worth of every person.
