1776 and young Billy Marvel is sailing on the high seas when a storm leaves him shipwrecked. The lone survivor, Billy makes his way to London where he finds work in a theatre. His family flourishes for many generations, establishing a great acting dynasty until 1900, when young Leontes Marvel is banished from the stage.

Nearly a century later, in 1990, Joseph Jervis runs away from school and seeks refuge with his Uncle Albert in London. But his uncle’s home is like something from another time. Strange and beautiful, filled with mysterious portraits and ghostly presences, the house captivates Joseph and leads him on a search for clues to why his uncle keeps it untouched by time.

In this innovative and highly-imaginative novel, two stories set centuries apart — the first told completely in illustrations, the other told in prose — converge to tell a dazzling and touching story you will never forget. The third and final work in the thematic trilogy that Selznick began with the Caldecott Medal-winning The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

FREE with purchase: a 16X11-inch fold-up map of London, created by Brian Selznick, featuring his drawings of 13 places in the city that inspired places and moments in The Marvels.
