In the number 1 New York Times bestselling novel 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 distinct peek at their lives after Wonder ends. Mr. Browne’s essays and correspondence are rounded out by a precept for every day of the year—drawn from popular songs to kids’s books to inscriptions on Egyptian tombstones to fortune cookies. His choices celebrate the goodness of human beings, the strength of other folks’s hearts, and the ability of other folks’s wills.
There’s something for everybody here, with words of knowledge from such noteworthy other folks as Anne Frank, Martin Luther King Jr., Confucius, Goethe, Sappho—and over 100 readers of Wonder who sent R. J. Palacio their very own precepts.
