Read the internationally bestselling book before you watch the major movie from Lionsgate, starring Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. This special edition is complete with exclusive behind-the-scenes content.
The unforgettable and life-affirming story of August Pullman - a boy who's desperate to blend in, but is destined to stand out.

'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.'

Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go.

Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school. All he wants is to be accepted. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?

Astonishingly powerful, WONDER is a read you'll never forget.

'Flirting, boasting, gossiping, teasing, hanging out, confessing: all that classic teen stuff has always happened ... It's just that it used to happen behind the bike sheds, or via tightly folded notes pressed urgently into sweating hands in the corridor between lessons. Social networking sites and mobile phones have simply facilitated the whole business, a gadzillion times over .' - John Henley, in an article in The Guardian

Selfies, Sexts and Smartphones is the book every teenager (and their parents) should read. It covers all of the major issues teenagers face in the digital age, including cyberbullying, sexting, addiction, internet safety, porn, anxiety, depression, privacy and reputation, and does so within a South African context. Accessible, informative and even fun, this book will help guide you to a happy, rewarding and, most importantly, safe online life.

Upon reading Selfies, Sexts and Smartphones, one 17-year-old remarked: 'I feel I need to say thank you for this. It talks about the stuff I deal with every single day.'

The setting for this play is a Boer potato farm during the apartheid regime. The labourers, including prison workers, rise up against the 'Baas' and his induna, an older black man who is in charge of the workforce. The old man's life changes through what happens as does that of his wife and daughter. The story is told through the conversation of the induna's wife and the young man who was to have married the daughter. The rebellion on the farm hints at a far larger conflict looming 'up north', as the young man leaves the farm to go and fight for the freedom and dignity of his people. Zakes Mda wrote the play in 1979 when he was in his early twenties.

Thoughtful, insightful and compelling, Granite is a well-executed imagining of what happened to cause the collapse of the civilisation of Great Zimbabwe (called Zimba Remabwe in the book.)
While adult historical fiction has experienced a recent resurgence in interest, narratives are mostly drawn from European history.
Granite is refreshingly African, illuminating a relatively unexplored area in fiction. It also shifts "fictionalised history" away from the European centre: in the story, Zimba Remabwe exists as a sophisticated African city state well integrated with the rest of the mid-fifteenth-century world. It is a world in which Arab scholars travel from China and India to Europe and Britain, filing their chronicles in the revered library of Timbuktu.
The narrative method is worth noting: because he cannot write, the story is dictated by a young nobleman called Mokomba - one of few survivors of his city's downfall. The penman is Shafiq, a learned Arab traveller who is a father figure after the passing of Mokomba's own father.
Each chapter relates a series of events from these two characters' perspectives, as they fill in what the other might have glossed over. The result is a finely rendered narrative of two distinct voices.
