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 first 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 into 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. Plutois 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 first 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.
