Introducing Wonder: The Julian Chapter

There are two sides in every story. In WONDER, readers fell in love with Auggie. They felt for him as he attended a real school for the first time and dealt with being bullied for his differences.

THE JULIAN CHAPTER is the other side of the story, one that readers of WONDER by RJ Palacio won’t want to miss.

Terry Pratchett’s Wintersmith and Steeleye Span

Posted by Philippa

It’s a curious thing this business of having been around publishing for rather a long time. Along with the usual manifestations of the passing years come the puzzled looks from younger colleagues when one mentions working before the advent of the internet, personal computers and even faxes. And then there are references to cultural icons they’ve never heard of.

True, I’ve usually never heard of the so-called ‘celebrities’ which dominate the current ‘reality’ TV they all seem to enjoy, but the blank faces I got when I mentioned how excited I was that Steeleye Span’s latest album was based on Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novel, Wintersmith surprised me. How could they not know the folk-rock band whose All Around My Hat was a UK chart hit (got no 5 at a time when being a chart hit really meant something), or whose Gaudete is a Christmas perennial?

All aboard! RHCP has created a brand new app from the best-selling Little Red Train stories by Benedict Blathwayt. Available to buy for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch from today, this interactive app combines classic picture book charm from the much-loved series with innovative features to provide hours of enjoyment for children. They can read-along, with or without audio; record their own narration; discover sounds within the pages; explore some fantastic animation; and enjoy a brilliant narration by the fantastic Richard Briers.

The app contains an initial story, The Little Red Train, with two further stories, To the Rescue! and Race to the Finish available via in-app purchase, enabling children to build their own bookshelf of classic Little Red Train picture books. Every book read gains a special postcard from Driver Duffy at the end, celebrating the achievement for young readers of finishing a story.

We have some very exciting news to share!

The Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) has today launched a book club, in partnership with Random House Children’s Publishers (RHCP), to encourage schools to use books to discuss issues around bullying, and encourage children to speak up about their own bullying experiences.

Lauren Seager-Smith is the National Coordinator of ABA, which is hosted by the National Children’s Bureau. She said: “’We are excited to be working with RHCP to bring the subject of bullying to life through story telling. We hope the book club will inspire children to read about the experiences of others and to speak up about theirs. Children who experience bullying need to know that they’re not alone. They need to know that they can speak up and that they will be heard.” 

The first book will be the best-selling Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Wonder tells the story of Auggie Pullman – a young boy born with a rare facial disfigurement, who faces life in a new school.

 Wonder author R. J. Palacio says “One child at a time, one person at a time, there’s no greater antidote to bullying than the steadfast refusal of children, teachers, and parents to accept a culture where bullying is tolerated. I am delighted to be working with the Anti-Bullying Alliance and hope Wonder will inspire children to be kind to one another”

Children and teachers from the ABA School and College Network will review the books. Their insights will be shared through the ABA website, which will hopefully inspire others to read the titles and, in turn, encourage children to speak up about bullying.

To become a member of the School and College Network, or to find out more about ABA’s new book club, visit www.anti-bullingalliance.org.uk or email aba@ncb.org.uk
