Wonderstruck, a book from the author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Brian Selznick, tells two stories, set 50 years apart. One told in pictures, and one in words.
If you are unfamiliar with Selznick's work, his line drawings beautifully tell the story which weave together in a surprising and inventive way.
While it is technically a children/young adult book, the strong characters and riveting plot line makes his books a great read for anyone.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
