5.0 out of 5 stars Another triumph!, 22 Mar 2012
This review is from: Wonderstruck (Schneider Family Book Award - Middle School Winner) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very special book, and I hope that the release of Hugo the film based on Selznick's previous book the Invention of Hugo Cabret will bring a wide audience to it. The book works on a number of levels, the most immediately impressive being the pencil drawings. Their cinematic style is great and whilst I could never imagine buying a graphic novel, the telling of Rose's story in this form really worked for me.

Ben's story is sweetly told in an easy prose style which will be very accessible to children. The intertwining of the stories works well. Whilst I did not find this book quite as impressive as The Invention of Hugo, nevertheless this is an excellent book which I highly recommend.
