The Marvels by Brian Selznick

The Marvels  by Brian Selznick

So, I have been a fan of all the other Brian Selznick books and loved them all profusely. When I learned that he was coming out with another, I just knew that it was going to be great. And it was, great can not even describe it. The book starts out with only pictures and it is not until at least half way that the words start. When the words do start, they start off with a completely different story that is an interruption of the conclusion of the pictures. It all comes together so beautifully and I was not able to guess it. I love all of the connections and meaning behind every single world and the importance of every single drawing. Towards the end, I found it really hard to put the book down for class because everything was coming together. This book has a great message, which I cannot say more about without ruining anything, although I can say that even with more then half the book being pictures, it still shows the importance, meaning and significance of words. The characters and the story really stay with you. I would recommend this book to anyone. It is a truly touching and marvelous story. I give this book five stars because I love everything about it.
