Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick is beautiful, both as art and as story. The combined use of pencil drawings and text to weave one story from two separate lives captivated me. There are not many books that I read in one sitting, and this was one. It felt as though I blinked and it was over. Although this is billed as juvenile literature (ages 9-12), I recommend it to adults. Brian Selznick has his own amazing style and it is like nothing else currently out there.
