Foyles Notes

A thoughtful joy of a book, written from multiple viewpoints, so that the child-reader can get inside the heads of all the characters. It pulls you into August Pullman’s life and beautifully illustrates the transformative power of empathy and kindness. I urge everyone to read it.

Cressida Cowell, Foyles Literacy Ambassador

 

Synopsis

Read the internationally bestselling book before you watch the major movie from Lionsgate, starring Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. This special edition is complete with exclusive behind-the-scenes content. The unforgettable and life-affirming story of August Pullman - a boy who's desperate to blend in, but is destined to stand out.'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. All he wants is to be accepted. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?Astonishingly powerful, WONDER is a read you'll never forget.
