Auggie & Me

Auggie & Me

Author: R. J. Palacio Narrator: Michael Chamberlain, R. J. Palacio, Scott Merriman, Taylor Ann Krahn Release Date: 01/08/2015

Millions of readers have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. Wonder tells his story from six different perspectives, but there were some characters whose unique perspectives were not shared-until now. The Julian Chapter gives readers a chance to hear from Wonder's most controversial character. From the very first day Auggie and Julian met, it was clear they were never going to be friends. This story finally reveals the bully's side of the story. Why is Julian so unkind to Auggie? And does he have a chance for redemption? Pluto offers a peek at Auggie's life before Wonder. Christopher and Auggie were best friends from the time they were babies until Christopher's family moved away; he was there for all of Auggie's earliest memories, from surgeries to Star Wars marathons. Pluto is the story of two boys who have grown apart but are learning that good friendships are worth a little extra effort. Shingaling shines new light on life as a fifth grader at Beecher Prep-as seen from the perspective of Charlotte, the girl chosen to be Auggie's "welcome buddy." Readers will learn more about Charlotte and her budding friendship with reader-favorite Summer, how the girls at Beecher Prep react to Auggie attending their school for the first time, and how Charlotte came to write the precept she used at the end of Wonder: "It's not enough to be friendly. You have to be a friend." This collection is a special treasury for readers eager to spend more time in Auggie's world.

Almost 2 million people have read the New York Times bestseller Wonder and fallen in love with Auggie Pullman.

Alternating between childhood flashbacks and the present day, an especially bad day for Christopher, Pluto is the story of two boys grown apart learning that good friendships are worth a little extra effort.

Soon to be a major film starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay. '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 - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all? WONDER is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

Author: R. J. Palacio Narrator: Diana Steele, Kate Rudd, Nick Podehl Release Date: 01/02/2012

August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school-until now. He's about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances? R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and writing that shines with spare emotional power. "Wonder is a book with such a big, wide heart- it shows how we are all fragile, imperfect, and perfectly beautiful creatures. A wonderful novel by a wonder of a writer!" - Julia Alvarez, author of Return to Sender, Before We Were Free, Finding Miracles, and the Tía Lola Stories
