Wonderstruck

Wonderstruck - Brian Selznick I first read 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' when my kids were younger, and loved the way the author told the story in pencil drawings that took up entire and several pages throughout the book, interspersing them with worded pages. Then I found out that 'Wonderstruck' followed the same concept, but had to wait patiently until I joined a library that had it. I cannot rave about the wow factor of this book without dropping a spoiler or two. It's a children's book, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Parents and children should read this -- either together or individually. It makes for a fun and wonder-filled discussion afterwards. The same goes for 'Hugo' (which was made into a movie).
