it was amazing

Fabulous. The artwork is gorgeous, the story compelling. Brian Selznick is a genius story-teller, his pacing just right. I got tears in my eyes the first time Ben's face was revealed.

In the (very interesting) acknowledgments, Selznick says he owes a debt of gratitude to E. L. Konigsburg, and notes that Wonderstruck is filled with references to From the Mixed-up Files... I can think of two off the top of my head--the boy named Jamie, and the bookstore Kincaid's.
