Giveaway:  The Marvels by Brian Selznick – THE BRIAN SELZNICK COLLECTION #TheMarvels

Caldecott Award winner and bookmaking trailblazer Brian Selznick once again plays with the form he invented and takes readers on a voyage!

Two seemingly unrelated stories--one in words, the other in pictures--come together. 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.

    I fell in love with Hugo a few years ago and read Wonder as well. They are such beautiful books. I know this one will be just as intriguing as the others.

    I love The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Wonderstruck. Also, Dennis Severs’ House that inspired the story is one of my favorite places to visit in London.
