Description

Author:  R. J. Palacio  | Illustrator:  Tad Carpenter | Age: 4-10 | English


A stunning illustrated edition featuring original colour artwork by Tad Carpenter, the artist behind Wonder's iconic cover, which celebrates ten years of this bestselling global phenomenon.

'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 facial difference, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to school. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?

A funny, frank and astonishingly moving novel to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page, this special anniversary edition also features an afterword from the author on ten years of Wonder.
