Waiting on Wednesday: The Marvels

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
It's a weekly meme about upcoming books we're excited about!

The Marvels 
by Brian Selznick
Publication Date: September 15, 2015

From Goodreads:
Two seemingly unrelated stories - one in words, the other in pictures - come together. The illustrated story begins in 1766 with Billy Marvel, the lone survivor of a shipwreck, and charts the adventures of his family of actors over five generations. The prose story opens in 1990 and follows Joseph, who has run away from school to an estranged uncle's puzzling house in London, where he, along with the reader, must piece together many mysteries.

Why I'm Excited
- It's a new Brian Selznick book! I love Brian Selznick! His illustrations and the way he tells his stories through pictures and words is just wonderful and magical.


  1. Okay, I admit...I have not read anything by Brian. BUT I really want too, and I'm super excited for this one. It sounds fantastic. :0)


    1. Selznick's books are so amazing. I have a feeling this one is going to be my favorite. :)
