I actually stumbled across this book on Design Mom. Adam and I have both read it in the week since he picked it up for us. I already can't wait to be able to read it with Campbell - though it will be a few years.
But this is a fabulous book about a little boy engaged in a mystery surrounding his dad's death and a strange invention he was working on. The story is fun but the beauty of the book literally comes from the magnificent pictures. Brian Selznick's art is amazing!
This is actually a sample from an interview I found and is a picture that didn't make it into the book. So, if this got cut you can imagine how breathtaking the drawings in the book are.
The coolest picture book I've ever seen!
