A magical tale about…well magic of course! The magic of a boys relationship with his father, their love of crafted things, mysterious objects, capturing of dreams and the connectedness of people and things.
Selznick does something that all great crafters do. He carefully weaves the tiniest fragments into the most wonderous things and still lives you wondering. There were passages so delicate and strong that I felt chills.
This is a book every child should have in their collection and I hope every child reads before seeing the movie.
