With over 9 million copies in print for the Wonder publishing programme, the book, written by R.J. Palacio, is seen as a source of inspiration by many across America today.
A key item in the consumer products line is the 365 day journal set, featuring quotes from the bestseller, a daily calendar and Wonder stationery line, inspirational t-shorts at Hot Topic, social expression cards from Out of Print Clothing, jewellery at 10pm online and classroom supplies from Raymond Geddes.
