Who we are! Us! Right? What kind of people are we? What kind of person are you? Isn't that the most important thing of all? Isn't that the kind of question we should be asking ourselves all the time? What kind of person am I?
— Mr. Browne, Wonder

Thomas Browne is a teacher in R.J. Palacio 's book, Wonder, along with its upcoming film adaptation. He is an English teacher at Beecher Prep, where he has taught August Pullman, Jack Will, Julian Albans, and Charlotte Cody, along with many other students.

He is portrayed by Daveed Diggs in Wonder.


Mr Browne is described as a crazy person by Julian, in the film. Mr Browne is a kind and inspirational person. This is shown through his constant delivery of positive thinking and he sets a good role model for his students.


Mr. Browne's Precepts are an important part of his class. Every month, there is a new precept, which the students have to write about at the end of the month. In addition to Mr. Browne's precepts, his students are given the chance to offer some of their own. After the school year ends, they can send him a postcard with a precept, which may be their own original one or from elsewhere, over the summer.



  • Mr. Browne's actor plays Thomas Jefferson and Lafayette in the Broadway musical Hamilton.
  • Mr. Browne and Sara Blum are the only adult characters to tell their stories.
