The Marvels
By Brian Selznick

 

A book by the author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret is an event, and Selznick’s latest—a story of an 18th century shipwreck, told mostly in pictures, twined with a seemingly unrelated tale of late 20th century London, told mostly in prose—is worth the hype.

By Mac Barnett

 

 

Leo knows he’d make a wonderful friend, if only he could find someone who doesn’t immediately race off in terror when he bids a ghostly “hello.”

By Rainbow Rowell

The Pigeon creator heads to Paris with his first chapter book about a homebody dog who meets a wandering cat and finds true friendship.

 

 

What is life like for the teenagers who aren’t the ones destined to battle evil forces? Ness’s protagonists have bigger problems than preventing the end of the world or falling in love with vampires—problems like getting a date for prom and passing biology.
