Rethinking the Picture Book: Part Two

Brian Selznick's Latest
Autumn is near and we're sure you've seen the ever so slight change in the color of leaves. On the book front -- as in books for savvy kids -- the spectacular "colors" of great fiction arrived early.

If you enjoyed the remarkable, award-winning title, The Invention of Hugo Cabret  (soon to be a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese),  Wonderstruck offers another wild ride. Meet Rose and Ben, two kids living 50 years apart. Ben's story is told using words; Rose's story is told only in pictures.

Selznick's latest also salutes E.L. Konigsburg's 1967 classic, From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.
