Wonder Struck


Ben and Rose secretly wish their lives were different.  Ben longs for the father he has never known. Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whos life chronicles in a scrapbook  When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his mother’s room and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out alone on desperate quests to find what they are missing.

Set fifty years apart, these two independent  stories – Ben’s told in words, Rose’s in pictures-weave back and forth with mesmerizing symmetry.  How they unfold and ultimately intertwine will surprise you, challenge you and leave you breathless with wonder.  Rich, complex, affecting, and beautiful-with over 460 pages of original artwork-Wonderstruck is a stunning achievement from a uniquely gifted artist and visionary.
