Title: Wonder Struck
Author: Brian Selznick

How did this book make you feel?
This book kept me captivated and speaks to the nostalgic and creative parts of me.

What did you like about this book?
Brian tells his story in a unique way. There are a few pages of text followed by several pages of graphics with no text that continues the story, and this is repeated throughout the book. The graphics are deceptively simple and in black and white but effective in conveying emotion and telling a story. 5/5 Stars
