Another masterpiece by Brian Selznick, the wonderfully talented author who brought us the Invention of Hugo Cabret. This story is a bit more intricately woven together with main characters you’ll adore. I loved, as everyone does, the gorgeous illustrations. They will absolutely take your breath away.
I don’t want to give any bits of the story away, but like Hugo, we get to see a well-researched piece of the past. A wonderful story that will leave you smiling, illustrations that will blow your mind and an opportunity to time travel? What more could you ask for in a book? The ending might seem a bit too planned, but sometimes I enjoy a happy ending, even if things seem like they ended too perfectly. I advise all of you to get your hands on a copy of this one immediately.
