The Marvels - Brian Selznick

Caldecott winner Brian Selznick’s latest innovative, illustrated novel is a tribute to the power and wonder of story. The first of two distinct narratives is told entirely through pictures, drawn with Selznick’s trademark pencil crosshatching, and begins in the 18th century. The Marvels (Scholastic, $32.99) are a generation of actors who command a presence on the London stage. In the second story, told in prose and set in 1990, a teenager runs away from his boarding school to his uncle’s home in Spitalfields, London. While the two stories are largely separate, connections abound with themes of loss, family, creativity, and hope. This is storytelling and book-making at its finest. Ages 11-14
