A breathtaking new voyage from Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick. Two stand-alone stories--the first in nearly 400 pages of continuous pictures, the second in prose--create a beguiling narrative puzzle. The journey begins 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. Nearly a century later, runaway Joseph Jervis 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 stories connect, The Marvels is a loving tribute to the power of story from an artist at the vanguard of creative innovation.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Brian SelznickPublisher: Scholastic PressPublished: 09/15/2015ISBN: 9780545448680Pages: 672Weight: 3.05lbsSize: 8.30h x 5.80w x 2.20dAward: Georgia Children's Book Award - FinalistAward: Cybils - FinalistReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 07/01/2015Publishers Weekly 07/06/2015Booklist 07/01/2015 pg. 66School Library Journal 08/01/2015 pg. 92Entertainment Weekly 08/14/2015 pg. 67Horn Book Magazine 09/01/2015 pg. 117BookPage 09/01/2015New York Times Book Review 09/13/2015 pg. 21New York Times Book Review 09/20/2015 pg. 26Shelf Awareness 09/15/2015Voice of Youth Advocates 10/01/2015 - Recommended - Hard To BeatBulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 11/01/2015PW Best Children's Books 11/02/2015 pg. 52Kirkus Best Middle Grade Books 11/15/2015 pg. 87PW Children's Starred Reviews 12/02/2015 pg. 70NY Times Notable Bks of Year 12/06/2015 pg. 34Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 176872 / MarvelsReading Level: 4.6 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 6
