The Marvels by Brian Selznick. This is Brian Selznick’s third book. It is not part of a series, but it is however similar to his first two books. All of Brian Selznick’s books are big, and they seem intimidating at first, but once you open them, you will soon discover that most of the pages are pictures. But Brian’s pictures don’t go along with the story, they tell the story.
This book started with the first 400 pages as pictures telling a story. Further into the book, there is actual writing, and the words tell a different story about a young boy who goes to look for his Uncle. The boy is very curious about his past, and it has to do with the story the first 400 pages of pictures told.
This book is a nice, light read. It doesn’t take a lot of concentration, since most of it is pictures. Brian Selznick’s books are beautiful. I fell in love with this book as soon as a I saw it. I definitely recommend it to anyone.
5 out of 5 stars.
