Wonderstruck is truly a unique book. It's impossible not to open its pages and be pulled in. It's a beautiful book. My daughter and son LOVED the illustrations and thought them amazing. I totally agree. Wonderstruck involves two stories that eventually converge into one, which my daughter thought was cool because Rose's story, told through the illustrations, was from the viewpoint of someone deaf living in the 1920s, whereas Ben's narrated story took place in the 1970s.
