Win a set of inspiring books by R.J. Palacio!

Go on a touching adventure with three amazing R.J. Palacio books!

"Wonder" is the best-selling story of Auggie, the ten year old who just wants to be ordinary. Auggie's facial difference means that he is often stared at and has been home-schooled for his whole life. But now he is going to be attending school for the first time, he wonders if he will be accepted. This book is funny, honest and moving and sticks with the reader.

"Pony" is the engaging adventure of twelve year old Silas as he tries to resue his father, accompanied by a ghost, Mittenwool, and a mysterious pony. Through his difficult journey, Silas faces his fears, discovers the secrets of his past and delves into fasinating mysteries. This is a wonderful coming of age story that ties together the power of love and what connects us and is sure to engage curious readers.

"White Bird" is a powerful graphic novel that comes from the same universe as "Wonder". This time we follow the story of Auggie's classrom bully, Julian. The graphic novel looks at a new perspective to the story and explores Julian's grandmother's story as she hides from the Nazis in occupied France during WWII. The story champions the power of courage and kindness and is a thrilling page-turner.

We are delighted to be giving away all three R.J. Palacio books to five lucky winners who fill out the form below by 11pm Thursday 14th December 2023. Good Luck!
