WONDERSTRUCK by Brian Selznick to be published September 13, 2011
We are thrilled to announce that Brian Selznick, the award-winning author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, will publish his next ground-breaking novel, WONDERSTRUCK, on September 13, 2011!
Told in the same text and pictures format as Hugo, WONDERSTRUCK weaves together two compelling, independent stories, set fifty years apart—Ben’s story, which takes place in 1977, is told in words; Rose’s story in 1927 is told in pictures. A sample of the art is above. WONDERSTRUCK will have over 460 pages of original artwork.
