July 29th, 2012
First off, we would like to thank the HUFFINGTON POST for their recent article about this new book titled, WONDER, written by R. J. Palacio and published by Random House KNOPF. She has created a very inspiring book and it really deserves some attention & we appreciate it.
In the video above , Author R. J. Palacio and Chip Kidd discuss Palacio’s debut novel, WONDER. They also discuss the anti-bullying campaign, CHOOSE KIND, that was inspired by the book and more. The basic premise of the book is that it is about a little boy named Auggie. He is ten and he was born with a facial deformity that is really quite severe. One of the really interesting things R. J. has done is she writes from his point of view and she writes from other characters points' of view, and little by little, she describes what he looks like. You start to build it in your head, but it starts with people's reactions to it. The entire story is very inspirational and will change your point of view about both life, and people, in many good ways.
