Penguin presents the complete, unabridged audiobook of Wonder by R. J. Palacio, read by Nick Podehl, Kate Rudd and Diana Steele.'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. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?Astonishingly powerful, WONDER is a read you'll never forget.

Remarkable . . . It has the power to move hearts and change minds * Guardian * Incredibly charming, brutal and brilliant * Observer * It wreaks emotional havoc . . . To finish it with a firm resolve to be a better person - well, you can't ask much more of any book than that * Independent * When the kids have finished with this, the adults will want to read it. Everybody should * Financial Times * Awesome . . . So authentic you'll swear a kid wrote the book. And yes, that's a good thing * Glamour * What a gem of a story. Moving and heart-warming. This book made me laugh, made me angry, made me cry -- Malorie Blackman I am terrifically jealous of everybody that gets to read Wonder for the first time. Every page is honest, brave and delightful -- Laura Dockrill It's one of those rare books with almost universal appeal: it will make you laugh, cry and break your heart * The Bookseller * The breakout publishing sensation . . . Destined to go the way of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and then some. It is dark, funny, touching and no Tube carriage will be without a copy this year * The Times * A children's book that's making grown men cry * Observer * Thoughtful but never preachy. A great book -- Sophie Kinsella
