From Brian Selznick, the creator in the Caldecott Medal winner THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET, comes yet another breathtaking tour de force. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his mother's area and Rose reads an enticing headline inside the newspaper, both children set out alone on desperate quests to locate what they are missing. Playing making use of the form he created in his trailblazing debut novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Brian Selznick once again sails into uncharted territory and takes readers on an awe-inspiring journey. Ben and Rose secretly wish their lives were diverse. Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. How they unfold and ultimately intertwine will surprise you, challenge you, and leave you breathless with wonder. Ben longs for the father he has never recognized. Set fifty years apart, these two independent stories--Ben's told in words, Rose's in pictures--weave back and forth with mesmerizing symmetry. Rich, complex, affecting, and beautiful--with over 460 pages of original artwork--Wonderstruck is a stunning achievement from a uniquely gifted artist and visionary.
