Brian Selznick does it again! His new book, The Marvels, is a century-spanning adventure tale of beauty, mystery, and survival told in the signature style of writing and illustration that made young-reader classics of The Adventures of Hugo Cabret and Wonderstruck. The story begins with Billy Marvel, who survives a shipwreck, is taken in by a London theater troupe, and becomes the first of several generations of famous actors. One hundred years later, Joseph Jervis vanishes from school and takes up with his mysterious uncle, Albert Nightingale, whose strange, massive house holds secrets to their family’s past.
