Over 5 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller Wonder—the book that inspired the Choose Kind movementand have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face.

In Wonder, readers were introduced to memorable English teacher Mr. Browne and his love of precepts. This companion book features conversations between Mr. Browne and Auggie, Julian, Summer, Jack Will, and others, giving readers a special peek at their lives after Wonder ends. Mr. Browne's essays and correspondence are rounded out by a precept for each day of the year—drawn from popular songs to children’s books to inscriptions on Egyptian tombstones to fortune cookies. His selections celebrate the goodness of human beings, the strength of people’s hearts, and the power of people’s wills.

There’s something for everyone here, with words of wisdom from such noteworthy people as Anne Frank, Martin Luther King Jr., Confucius, Goethe, Sappho—and over 100 readers of Wonder who sent R. J. Palacio their own precepts.

          This is a very inspiring book that you can read over and over again. The book is a companion to the popular book, Wonder. The book is full of amazing precepts. The some of them are Mr. Browne’s precepts from during the school year, and some are the precepts that students have handed in. There is one precept for every day of the year, in total, 365. I between each month there is a passage. Some are just Mr. Browne talking, but some are e_mails Between students and Mr. Browne. The e-mail’s uncover the answer to a question that Julian, Jack, Summer and Auggie have been asking themselves since the end of the school year. This is a great book to read, and I loved reading the precept of the day each day!!!

                    This book was interesting. It was filled with precepts, which are debatable and inspiring quotes mentioned in Wonder. Between each month, Auggie's teacher Mr. Browne tells short stories, some relating to Auggie's story, and the last e-mail solving the mystery of who snitched on Julian.
