Wonder
SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY!

Over 5 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. 

The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.

I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

"Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

La lección de August: Wonder (Spanish-langugae Edition) (Spanish Edition)
Su cara lo hace distinto y él solo quiere ser uno más. Camina siempre mirando al suelo, la cabeza gacha y el ­flequillo tratando en vano de esconder su rostro, pero, aun así, es objeto de miradas furtivas, susurros ahogados y codazos de asombro. August sale poco. Su vida transcurre entre las acogedoras paredes de su casa, entre la compañía de su familia, su perra Daisy y las increíbles historias de La guerra de las galaxias. Este año todo va a cambiar, porque este año va a ir, por primera vez, a la escuela. Allí aprenderá la lección más importante de su vida, la que no se enseña en las aulas ni en los libros de texto: crecer en la adversidad, aceptarse tal como es, sonreír a los días grises y saber que, al final, siempre encontrará una mano amiga.

Wonder: La historia de Julián  (The Julian Chapter: A Wonder Story) (Spanish Edition)
¿Qué motivos tiene Julian para odiar a August? ¿Será capaz de asumir sus errores y empezar de nuevo?

WONDER. La lección de August ha recordado a miles de lectores la importancia de ser amable. Pero este no es un libro sobre August, un niño que quiere ser normal a pesar de su aspecto.

Esta es la historia de Julian, el niño que peor se porta con él. No soporta verlo, no soporta que sea amigo de Jack, no soporta que esté en su colegio... y no es capaz de darse cuenta del impacto que sus actos pueden tener en los demás.

Provocadora, sorprendente y emotiva, La historia de Julian deleitará a los lectores de WONDER. La lección de August... y a los que todavía no la han leído.
