Description - Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick

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 mesmerising symmetry. How they unfold and ultimately intertwine will surprise you, challenge you... and leave you breathless with wonder. 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. Rich, complex, affecting and beautiful, Wonderstruck is a stunning achievement from a uniquely gifted artist and visionary.

Book Review: Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick - Reviewed by (23 Nov 2011)

Wonderstruck is an amazing novel- part book and part drawing, it tells the intricate and delicate stories of two children, both living in different times, fifty years apart, and both travelling to Ney York to be free, to find people who will love them.

One story, that of Ben, a boy who is partially deaf, is told only in words, and the other, the story of Rose a fully deaf girl living fifty years before Ben's time, is told fully in Brian Selznick's amazing pictures. Both are heart rendering and powerful beyond belief, they are a treasure and can be read over and over again. For any age.
