Illustrator of the Week - Brian Selznick

Brian Selznick has been working as an author and illustrator for a number of years. His fanciful, cartoon-like drawings can be seen on many books, some of which I'm sure you are familiar. Having attended The Rhode Island School of Design and then working at Eeyore's Books for Children in NYC, Selznick developed of love for children's books. His first book, The Houdini Box was publishing in 1991, quickly followed by titles such as Frindle, The Doll People, Mary's Ghost, When Marian Sang, and the Newbery Award Winning The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

This book brings the reader into the story through the use of wonderful illustrations that advance the story line. It sparks the imagination and allows for great discussion on many different levels. It is currently my grandson's favorite book! I loved it too.
