Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick's #1 NY Times bestseller is now available in ebook form! Exquisitely produced, it offers a unique reading experience, you'll want both the print and ebook editions!
Playing with 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 different. Ben longs for the father he has never known. Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his mother's room and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out alone on desperate quests to find what they are missing.
Set fifty years apart, these two independent stories -- Ben's told in words, Rose's in pictures -- weave back and forth with mesmerizing symmetry. How they unfold and ultimately intertwine will surprise you, challenge you, and leave you breathless with wonder. Rich, complex, affecting, and beautiful -- with over 460 pages of original artwork -- Wonderstruck is a stunning achievement from a uniquely gifted artist and visionary.

This book changed my life
Wonder struck is incredible completely changed my point of view on literature
WOW.. Just wow
Okay, don't be fooled by the pictures. I have always read at very high level (in 4th grade I read at a HS junior's level) and when I originally picked up Selznick's first book (at the time I was around 10) I was a little turned off judging that the book had so many pictures. But boy was I wrong, in my opinion The Invention of Hugo Cabret & Wonderstruck are such wonderful, wonderful books. I truly love Brian Selznick as an Author and hope you will too.
