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.

    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...

    Amazing book, I used to be scared when I just saw the trailer and didn't know what was going on but since I read it I thought to myself, we were made in gods image so we should respect that some people are different to others I give this a 4 star coz this book is amazing but some cancer things that some little kids will probably worry about it.😄😄😄

    The story of a little boy trying to fit in. It twists itself together into an unforgettable narrative, definitely not one I would put down. I highly recommend this book, it has that exciting but sad storyline with touches of humour. Everyone in my class has read it and they all brought back positive feedback. Wonder is a wonder.
  • WONDERFUL!!
