Amazon Best Books of the Month, September 2011: In a return to the eye-popping style of his Caldecott-award winner,The
Invention of Hugo Cabret, Brian Selznick’s latest masterpiece, Wonderstruck, is a vision of imagination and
storytelling . In the first of two alternating stories, Ben is struck deaf moments after discovering a clue to his
father’s identity, but undaunted, he follows the clue’s trail to the American Museum of Natural History, in New York
City. Flash to Rose’s story, told simultaneously through pictures, who has also followed the trail of a loved one to
the museum--only 50 years before Ben. Selnick’s beautifully detailed illustrations draw the reader inside the museum’s
myriad curiosities and wonders, following Ben and Rose in their search for connection. Ultimately, their lives collide
in a surprising and inspired twist that is breathtaking and life-affirming. --Seira Wilson
