This week’s book trailer features Wonderstruck, by Brian Selzick, the award-winning author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Selznick has just won an usual award for Wonderstruck: the Schneider Family Book Award, given each year for books that embody an artistic expression of the disability experience. Although this book is technically a children’s book, like The Invention of Hugo Cabret, many adults will find it to be an extraordinary read. This book trailer will give you an idea of the unique vision the author brings to his work.[tentblogger-youtube 9K2YaVxeTiM] [openbook booknumber=”ISBN:0545027896 ” templatenumber=”5″] Playing with the form he created in his trailblazing debut novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Brian Selznick once again sails into uncharted territory and takes readers on an awe-inspiring journey. Ben and Rose secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known. Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his mother’s room and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out alone on desperate quests to find what they are missing. Set fifty years apart, these two independent stories–Ben’s told in words, Rose’s in pictures–weave back and forth with mesmerizing symmetry. How they unfold and ultimately intertwine will surprise you, challenge you, and leave you breathless with wonder. Rich, complex, affecting, and beautiful–with over 460 pages of original artwork–Wonderstruck is a stunning achievement from a uniquely gifted artist and visionary.
