Editorial Reviews

Review

A New York Public Library Best Book of the Year
Sydney Taylor Book Award Winner 


Praise for White Bird:

"
At once expressive and chaste, an elusive but ideal combination." —New York Times

"A story that shows the impact of the Second World War and the rise of fascism on what had been a pastoral, fairy-tale childhood, with White Bird pulling no punches in connecting that historical moment to what’s happening in the world today." —The Hollywood Reporter

Extraordinarily powerful.... White Bird does not shrink from depicting the terror and violence of the Nazi occupation for younger readers, and respects the ability of those readers to handle strong material.” Forbes

"A must-read
graphic novel that is both heart-rending and beautifully hopeful."Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A story of resistance, bravery, and survival.... This compelling story is served well by the graphic novel format." —Booklist

Sure to be popular among fans of Wonder and educators who want to connect past to present.” —School Library Journal

"R.J. Palacio brings to life the nature of heroism and the real risks we face today." —Meg Medina, Newbery award-winning author of Mercy Suarez Changes Gears

"Rare, superb, timely, and timeless." —Mark Siegel, author of the 5 Worlds graphic novel series

About the Author

R. J. Palacio lives in New York City with her husband, two sons, and two dogs. For more than twenty years, she was an art director and graphic designer, designing book jackets for other people while waiting for the perfect time in her life to start writing her own novel. But one day several years ago, a chance encounter with an extraordinary child in front of an ice cream store made R.J. realize that the perfect time to write that novel had finally come. Wonder is her first novel. She did not design the cover, but she sure does love it. Her other books include 365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne's Book of Precepts, Auggie & Me: Three Wonder Stories, and We're All Wonders. Learn more about her at rjpalacio.com or on Twitter at @RJPalacio. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

R. J. Palacio was born and raised in New York City. She attended the High School of Art and Design and the Parsons School of Design, where she majored in illustration with the hopes of someday following in the footsteps of her favorite childhood author-illustrators, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Maurice Sendak, and the D’Aulaires. She was a graphic designer and art director for many years before writing Wonder. We’re All Wonders, which is based conceptually on the themes of her novel, represents the fulfillment of her dream to write and illustrate her own picture book. R.J. is also the author of Auggie & Me: Three Wonder Stories and 365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne’s Book of Precepts. She lives in Brooklyn, where she is surrounded by magical water towers, with her husband, their two sons, and their two dogs, Bear and Beau.

1.0 out of 5 stars Insinuates Trump’s immigration practices are like Hitlers
By christinaboatwright on October 8, 2019
Sadly the story itself was pretty good. A great introduction to small children regarding the holocaust. Unfortunately this book has a political agenda and compares Trumps immigration laws and practices to Hitler and the Holocaust. I hate it when children’s books try to indoctrinate our kids. Leave your political views out of it! Please see the attached pictures to know what I am talking about.

The book came damaged in all of its corners. All of the othet books plus the package were unharmed , witch means it was not destroyed in transport. This is NOT supposed to be the image of a brand new item paid in full price!
