Soon to be a major motion picture, starring Helen Mirren and Gillian Anderson!

Inspired by her blockbuster phenomenon Wonder, R. J. Palacio makes her graphic novel debut with an unforgettable, Sydney Taylor Book Award-winning story of the power of kindness and unrelenting courage in a time of war. And dont miss the authors highly anticipated new novel, Pony, available September 2021!

I was captivated by White Bird. It tells the hardest truths with honesty and calm (so that young readers can hear them). R.J. Palacio brings to life the nature of heroism and the real risks we face today. --Meg Medina, Newbery award-winning author of Mercy Suarez Changes Gears

In R. J. Palacios bestselling collection of stories Auggie & Me, which expands on characters in Wonder, readers were introduced to Julians grandmother, Grandmre. Here, Palacio makes her graphic novel debut with Grandmres heartrending story: how she, a young Jewish girl, was hidden by a family in a Nazi-occupied French village during World War II; how the boy she and her classmates once shunned became her savior and best friend.

Saras harrowing experience movingly demonstrates the power of kindness to change hearts, build bridges, and even save lives. As Grandmre tells Julian, It always takes courage to be kind, but in those days, such kindness could cost you everything. With poignant symbolism and gorgeous artwork that brings Saras story out of the past and cements it firmly in this moment in history, White Bird is sure to captivate anyone who was moved by the book Wonder or the blockbuster movie adaptation and its message.
