This little boy knows he’s ‘no ordinary kid’. His face isn’t the same as the other children and sometimes he’s bullied for it. But his parents tell him he’s a wonder. He knows that the world is made up of all different kinds of people, even those that look different.
Maybe someone will see that and accept him for how he is too? A wonder.
Based on the mega-hit Wonder, this picture book tells the story in a simpler format.

Once there were three brothers. Gus and Gareth and their little brother Cinderfella. They called him this because they bossed him around a lot, making him do everything around the house for them – even clip their toenails!
They are invited to Kayleigh’s dance party and tease Cinderfella about it. But he finds an invitation, dresses up in a cool disguise and goes too. He is the best dancer at the party and Kayleigh enjoys dancing with him.
But he has to be home before his brother’s bedtime, before they see him missing!
A clever, contemporary twist on Cinderella.
