Today's Book and Author of the day are... Wonder by R.J.Palacio and Cathyrn Constable!
Wonder is a book written by R.J.Palacio. It won the Waterstone's Best Book Award and is globally very famous.
This book is all about a little boy called August whose face is slightly different to others. It's about his adventure into middle school; the friends and foes he makes, decisions and disappointments. The book is in parts, so lots of the main characters have their own sections in the story.
It's a story about hope and kindness, and it's one I recommend to all. It's the best book I've read in a long, long time and it will probably get the Champion Readalot Book Prize at the end of the year.
Cathyrn Constable is a novelist who has written many books such as Wolf Princess. I gather she is quite a new author but let's just say, we can expect A LOT from her. Her words in her story 'Wolf Princess' are imaginative and gripping.
