"If you read one book this year, make it this one...a funny, emotional, brilliantly observed story...We loved it." --Bella Magazine, March 6 2012 issue
"I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse."
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He's about to start 5th 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?
"The breakout publishing sensation of 2012 will come courtesy of Palacio, a New York graphic designer whose debut novel, Wonder, is destined to go the way of Mark Haddon's Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, and then some. Telling the story of August, a schoolboy born with an unspecified facial deformity, it is dark, funny, touching, and no tube carriage will be without a copy this year." --The Times
"This was so gripping - I'd really recommend it to anybody. It's a young adult book book about a little boy who's born with a disfigured face, written from his point of view. It's incredibly charming, brutal and brilliant." --The Observer, Laura Dockrill, 29th Jan, 2012
"This book will make you cry without being soppy, teach you without being preachy and make you laugh without inhibition." --Sugarscape
"An uplifting, hopeful and important book." --The Bookseller
"Dark, funny, touching and no Tube carriage will be without a copy this year." --The Times
"It's sad, funny, inspiring, infuriating, eye opening and awesome! It's hard for me to express just how much I loved this book. It's an eye opener for any age." --Attack of the Book
"Wonder is a book for everybody young or old. It's an important and special book to be shared and discussed by both adults and children...I would whole heartedly recommend it to absolutely anybody. 5/5"
--Jess Hearts Books
`I'd defy anyone not to well up when he cries: "Why do I have to be so ugly, Mommy?", and as for the climax, it wreaks emotional havoc. There is a message running through the book, most clearly voiced by an inspirational teacher, that if we were all a little kinder to one another the benefit would be incalculable. To finish it with a firm resolve to be a better person - well, you can't ask much more of any book than that'.
--Suzi Feay, The Independent, February 12, 2012
