Another gorgeous combination of text and pictures from Brian Selznick. I particularly loved Rose's all picture storyline, since it was like seeing a silent film-- fitting for her, as you will see!

They need to invent a new category for his books come awards season, they really do! The Caldecott is for illustration, but the text is just as good, and supposedly the Newbery is for books that don't require illustration as part of their narrative . . . which rather leaves this book left out! I hope they bend the rules for Selznick, because this is an amazing book.
