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.
I read the actual book and I thought it was great yah auggie
I listened to the audio version of Wonder and found it entertaining, thought-provoking, and inspiring. Since then, my 11-year-old daughter listened to it and loved it, and one of my friends did likewise.
Great story - reasonable voice acting
Fantastic, heart-warming story!
The author tells August's story from many different characters voices. The tough part is that this recording attempts to create all their voices using only a few voice actor.
A great production nonetheless! A joy to listen to!
