A celebration of a truly extraordinary book and author, this very special edition brings together Wonder and its companion book, Auggie & Me, together for the first time.
Wonder was first published in 2012. Since then it has become a critically acclaimed, multi-million global bestseller, and been transformed into a major motion picture starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay. Its simple message of asking children and adults to #ChooseKind has sparked a global movement, and its status as a modern classic is assured.
This beautiful special edition contains the original text of Wonder, and also its companion novel, Auggie & Me, which follows the stories of Julian, Charlotte and Christopher, and their relationships with the unforgettable Auggie Pullman.
