THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET

ORPHAN, CLOCK KEEPER, AND THIEF, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station, Hugo's undercover life, and his most precious secret, are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery. 

WONDERSTRUCK

Written in the same breathtaking style as his debut novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Selznick present another richly vibrant masterpiece. Ben and Rose are two children who both secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known, and Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben uncovers a clue to his father's whereabouts in his mother's room and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both 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 and 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 and your children breathless with wonder. Prepare to be wonderstruck by this fantastically conceived and stunningly wrought novel. Your readers will fly through this uniquely beautiful novel as they read Ben's story and witness Rose's, discovering a world of wonder and possibility as they turn each page.

THE MARVELS

Caldecott Award winner and bookmaking trailblazer Brian Selznick once again plays with the form he invented and delivers a moving and mesmerizing adventure about the power of story. Two seemingly unrelated stories -- one in words, the other in pictures -- come together with spellbinding synergy! The illustrated story begins in 1766 with Billy Marvel, the lone survivor of a shipwreck, and charts the adventures of his family of actors over five generations. The prose story opens in 1990 and follows Joseph, who has run away from school to an estranged uncle's puzzling house in London, where he, along with the reader, must piece together many mysteries. How the picture and word stories intersect will leave readers marveling over Selznick's storytelling prowess. Filled with mystery, vibrant characters, surprise twists, and heartrending beauty, and featuring Selznick's most arresting art to date, The Marvels is a moving tribute to the power of story.
