Wonderstruck - Brian Selznick

In Caldecott medalist Brian Selznick’s (The Invention of Hugo Cabret) new masterpiece, two stories, one told in words and the other in pictures, interweave until they converge. In 1977, Ben, coping with hearing loss and his mother’s death, travels to New York City to find his mysterious father. Fifty years earlier, Rose, also deaf, spends time constructing models of New York’s skyline and seeking contact with a film star. Each discovers the American Museum of Natural History and is Wonderstruck (Scholastic, $29.99). The book’s brilliant construction reflects Ben’s and Rose’s silent worlds and assures readers that the bound book will always be wondrous. An afterword demonstrates the author’s passion and extensive research. Ages 10 and up. MAG
