A group of pupils from Holy Family, St Augustine’s, St Bede’s and St Teresa’s Catholic Primary Schools, who will start Carmel this September, have taken part in a Year 6 literacy transition programme. Twenty four pupils were tasked with reading three books, Framed, Private Peaceful and Wonder – all past winners of Book Factor. The pupils unanimously voted for Wonder by R.J Palacio as their champion of champions!
Wonder is the moving and uplifting tale of August Pullman, a boy born with a facial deformity who simply wants to be accepted, despite what he looks like. This story makes you grateful for the life you have and full of admiration for those who have the courage to overcome difficulties.
The screen adaptation of Wonder is expected for release towards the end of 2017 and will star Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as August’s parents.
