Wonderstruck, a New Book by Brian Selznick

posted by Nell Minow

Award-winning author Brian Selznick has a trailer for his new book, Wonderstruck. His last book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret was an enthralling story inspired by the great George Melies that was told through alternating pictures and text. It is currently being filmed by Martin Scorcese. As you can see, in this book Selznick tells two different stories, one with pictures, one with words, and then brings them together. Can’t wait to see it.

Many thanks to my friend Paul Zelinsky for bringing this to my attention.

    If ever a book was crying for the animation technique used in Polar Express, it is “Hugo Cabret”. So well suited to the story. I love the dual concept – it works on many levels. I am looking forward to Scorcese’s film and to this new book.

      I am a huge Melies fan and am very excited to see Scorcese’s film, jestrfyl, thanks.
