This is the incredible, and quite possible life changing, story of a girl called Rose and a boy called Ben.
The two live 50 years apart, yet their stories are destined to intertwine.
What I thought:
I was beyond thrilled when I heard about Wonderstruck, the new book from the author of Hugo Caberet and I went and pre-ordered my own copy from the UK book depositry. Free postage rocks my socks, by the way.
And after it arrived, I paused for 2 days the book I was currently reading and devoured ever picture, every page of Wonderstruck- Rose and Ben's stories captured me and I loved the fact that Ben's was told wholly in word and Rose's only in Brian Selznick's classic and amazing picture- It's quite a feat, a 630 page book finished in less than 2 days.
And I'm already almost ready to read it again- it is truly a more than amazing book, truly a feat of magic.
This is a true book review week, so come back each day for something new! Oh, and I've got 49 followers! I can't believe it! Thank you so much everyone!
Note- some of the things in this post may be a tad outdated; like me saying I just got it and the bit about the Grimm... I wrote this about three months ago.nice.
