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

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
