  1. A lovely book about two kids who who have different stories to tell but are the same in some ways. I love how Brain Selznick puts the two stories together in the end!

  2. This book was a story about a boy this is caught in a storm. My favorite character was Ben because he is a kid that is adventurous. I liked this book a lot because it is a long book with a lot of pictures. I would recommend this to someone who likes long books. You should read this book, it is a very good one!

  3. I like Wonderstruck because its a really great book.I really like it because its a book that has so many pictures and a story. What I really like about Wonderstruck is that its almost like a mystery, in Gunflint Lake,Minnesota and Hoboken,New Jersey. Its the best book ever. Better than Frindle.

  6. Angiebel, Meeting Street, 6. i like the book becuase all it has is pictures and only like 6 pages with words and it really shows you the story only in drawings.

  7. Wonderstruck is a good book for people to read because it is exciting. It is about a girl that wants her mom back but her mom was a movie star and did not want her. She gets help.I liked the story because it had 2 stories in one book.There is another story with a guy named Ben he can't hear but he is brave.
