The Marvels by Brian SelznickAbout The Marvels

Written and Illustrated by Brian Selznick

Publisher’s Synopsis: From the Caldecott Medal–winning creator of The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Wonderstruck comes a breathtaking new voyage.

In this magnificent reimagining of the form he originated, two stand-alone stories—the first in nearly 400 pages of continuous pictures, the second in prose—together create a beguiling narrative puzzle.

The journey begins on a ship at sea in 1766, with a boy named Billy Marvel. After surviving a shipwreck, he finds work in a London theatre. There, his family flourishes for generations as brilliant actors until 1900, when young Leontes Marvel is banished from the stage.

The Marvels Artwork

Nearly a century later, Joseph Jervis runs away from school and seeks refuge with an uncle in London. Albert Nightingale’s strange, beautiful house, with its mysterious portraits and ghostly presences, captivates Joseph and leads him on a search for clues about the house, his family, and the past.

A gripping adventure and an intriguing invitation to decipher how the two narratives connect, The Marvels is a loving tribute to the power of story from an artist at the vanguard of creative innovation.

Ages 8-12 years | Publisher: Scholastic | 2015 | ISBN-13: 978-0545448680

  • Thank you.

  • One of my biggest regrets was not buying the autographed copy of The Invention of Hugo Cabret when I saw it in a B. Dalton (dating myself here) in Cleveland. Instead, I spent $2 less to get a normal run-of-the-mill copy. Little did I know that I would fall in love with the story and the style.
