Book Review--Wonder Struck by Brian Selznick


Book Cover Courtesy of

Like many people, I waited in anticipation

for Brian Selznick's newest "picture book".

His book The Invention of Hugo Cabret

won a prestigious Caldecott medal and was

ground breaking because it was considered

a picture book yet was the size of a novel.

Wonder Struck is just as great

as Hugo in my opinion.

Selznick created a 639 page

picture book that tells two

stories, one with illustrations

and one with words.

At the end, the two stories merge

in a surprising way.

Whether you are 10 or 100, you owe

it to yourself to find a copy of this

book and enjoy a really good read.

I'm anxious to see the movie. Megan showed me the book when we were in the Scholastic Store in NYC yesterday. Very, very unique!
