This is the moving story of two children, separated by 50 years, but connected in more than way. Both children are deaf, and both runaway to the same museum in New York, only to find each other, and a more meaningful life.
The book is both written and illustrated by Brian Selznick, who blends these two artistic genres together so well that it would be impossible to have this story old any other way. I love this book, and this author, so much that I find it hard to put down one of his stories once I have started to read them.
