This exclusive special edition is packed with behind-the-scenes content, featuring interviews with the cast and crew, photos from on set, and introductions by director Stephen Chbosky and R. J. Palacio. Are you ready to meet 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 underneath it all, he’s just like them? Astonishingly powerful, brilliantly moving and joyfully life-affirming, WONDER is a read you’ll never forget.
