Narrator Kivilighan de Montebello's bright, sparkling voice adds charm to Palacio's recent picture book adaption of the critically acclaimed middle-grade novel WONDER--which sparked the "Choose Kind" anti-bullying movement. This spin-off, aimed at younger listeners, features the voice of the beloved and unforgettable character Auggie, whose life is fraught with difficulty and loneliness due a facial deformity. The story is short on plot and character background, so listeners not familiar with the original may be confused by Auggie's daily difficulties. But the message of self-acceptance and the wonder of hope are certain to resonate with younger listeners, nonetheless. D.S. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
