Read Wonder? Now join Auggie in the gorgeous picture book We're All Wonders

Published on: 28 November 2017 Author: Catriona Wightman

If you've read Wonder and fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, get ready for a brand new picture book all about him.

We're All Wonders

Children and adults across the world have fallen in love with August Pullman ever since R. J. Palacio released her heartbreaking novel Wonder.

The story follows August, "an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face", as he goes to school for the first time - and it's just been adapted into a movie, which is out in cinemas on Friday.

Now, younger children will also be able to meet Auggie as he's starring in a beautiful new picture book, We're All Wonders.

Illustrated by R. J. Palacio herself, the brand new tale follows Auggie and his dog Daisy as they go on an adventure but features the same themes of empathy and difference as the original book.

As a special treat, we've got a look inside the book at a couple of the gorgeous pages - see them below!
