The Marvels

by Brian Selznick

This beautiful story begins being told in pictures. It is of a shipwreck and a rescue. Billy Marvel is heads to the big city as the only survivor of this wreck. He begins to work in the theater and heads a dynasty of performers.

The story told in words is of a young boy, Joseph, who runs away from boarding school to find his mysterious uncle. There he begins to piece together his own story and comes across the mystery of Billy and his family.

This one is good for all readers, especially those reluctant readers because the beginning draws you in with the detailed pictures.
