Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick. That’s my new favourite book. Some of you may have heard me talk about this book. Ms. Ziola, Ms. Zuvic and Ms. Sian have all read it too.

Here’s a video from The Today Show with kids talking about the book with the author, Brian Selznick.
Come to the libary to check out this book. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please leave a comment here. Did you like one story better than the other? What do you think about the way deaf culture is represented? Would you recommend this book?

Hi! The book Wonder struck was fabulous! I loved how the characters combined together. I would recommend this to everybody!!!
I really enjoyed reading Wonderstruck. It was such a quick easy read, but it took me a little while to figure out it was about two different characters at two different time periods. I must say that the artwork is wonderful. I used the pictures to tell the story of the young girl to my 6 year old daughter. She was very proud that she was reading a “big kids, chapter book”
I can see why Ms. Arujio liked the book. With both characters being deaf, it speaks well to our school culture.
It is a great read for intermediate students who enjoy realistic fiction, mixed with adventure.
