«I'd defy anyone not to well up when he cries: "Why do I have to be so ugly, Mommy?", and as for the climax, it wreaks emotional havoc. There is a message running through the book, most clearly voiced by an inspirational teacher, that if we were all a little kinder to one another the benefit would be incalculable. To finish it with a firm resolve to be a better person - well, you can't ask much more of any book than that»
«The breakout sensation of 2012... Wonder is destined to go the way of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time... dark, funny, touching. No Tube carriage will be without a copy this year»
«Emotionally rewarding... funny, touching, honest»
«Gripping - I'd really recommend it to anybody. It's a young adult book book about a little boy who's born with a disfigured face, written from his point of view... charming, brutal and brilliant»
«Tremendously uplifting and a novel of all-too-rare power»
