I've been creative writing all my life, though with various haitus(es) along the way. IFrom 2010 I started this blog and enjoyed sharing writing and other information with everyone. illness and bereavement supplied the more recent hiatus.

I saw the trailer for the film 'Wonder' the other day and discovered it was a childrens' book by R.J. Palacio.

I then saw an interview with the author where she explained what prompted her to write the story.

Then, I just had to read it for myself.

WOW! If you have already read it you'll know that it's fabulously written, sensitive, funny, sad, uplifting and thought-provoking. I just loved it.


  1. It sounds like a perfect movie for the holidays. I will definitely see it, with or without a grandchild.

    1. Yes.I hope you enjoy it. It will be quite moving.

  2. Hi Maddy - it sounds like RJ has her ducks in order when she wrote that book - and so I imagine the movie will do it justice - thanks for telling us about her and "Wonder" ... cheers Hilary

  3. I knew it was a book but I've never read it.

  4. Hi Alex, It is a quick, but satisfying read.
