Good. Two converging stories. Until they meet, the flashback is in pictures only and the current time is in words. Very nicely done. A 600 page childrens book but more than half pictures and many very short chapters. This is my first experience with a graphic novel and I really liked the art: there are no word balloons in the pictures because the heroine is deaf - a nice touch. The pictures of Gunflint Trail wolves are fantastic.

Brian Selznick’s debut novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, won the Caldecott Medal. Selznick’s second book, Wonderstruck, continues to push the boundaries of the illustrated novel format. Just as Hugo Cabret told a good portion of its story through full-page black-and-white drawings, Wonderstruck is also full of Selznick’s trademark illustrations. But this time, half the novel is told through pictures alone—the story of Rose, a girl in the 1920s who becomes enchanted with a beautiful actress. Ben’s story, set in 1977 as he runs away from home, is told in words. Combined, the stories of Rose and Ben offer tales of mystery and intrigue that wind and weld through a union of art and prose. Selznick has become an expert at mixing elements of the novel, graphic novel, picture book, and film, and Wonderstruck continues to cement his reputation as a visionary in his field.
