Description - The Marvels by Brian Selznick

A MESMERIZING ADVENTURE ABOUT THE POWER OF STORY Two seemingly unrelated stories-one in words, the other in pictures-come together with seamless, ingenious synergy! We open in 1766 with a visual story: Young Billy Marvel becomes the lone survivor of a shipwreck. Returned to London, he grows up in a theater, where we follow the dramatic trials and triumphs of his progenyover five generations...We cut to 1990 with a narrative story: Lost and alone, and on the brink of expulsion from yet another boarding school, Joseph impulsively runs away to search for his best friend. He finds himself swept up with an erratic man in a strange and beautiful house full of secrets-secrets that compel Joseph on a treasure hunt.
