Brian Selznick's newest book.

If you like The Invention of Hugo Cabret, there's exciting news! As you wait for the movie to come out on November 23rd, check out Brian Selznick's newest book, coming out one week from today!

Out September 13, Wonderstruck is done in the same form as the groundbreaking (and awesome) Invention of Hugo Cabret.

According to Scholastic, "Ben’s story, which takes place in 1977, is told in words; Rose’s story in 1927 is told in pictures. Ever since his mother died, Ben feels lost. At home with her father, Rose feels alone. When Ben finds a mysterious clue hidden in his mother’s room, and when a tempting opportunity presents itself to Rose, both children risk everything to find what's missing. Rich, complex, affecting and beautiful, Wonderstruck is a stunning achievement from a uniquely gifted artist and visionary."

Shelf Awareness says, "Brian Selznick may have topped even his Caldecott Medal–winning The Invention of Hugo Cabret," and "Selznick does for New York in this book what he did for Paris in Hugo. He introduces the magic of the city and its untold secrets, its alleys and secret doorways." That's awesome!

I, for one, can't wait to get my hands on it next month. If you feel the same way, you can put a copy on reserve now by clicking here!
