About this book
From the creator of "The Invention Of Hugo Cabret" comes another breathtaking "tour de force". Set 50 years apart, two independent stories - Ben's told in words and Rosie's in pictures - weave back and forth with mesmerising symmetry. How they unfold and intertwine will surprise and challenge the reader. The film of "Hugo Cabret", directed by Martin Scorcese is due for release in December 2011. Ages: 9+
Ben's story takes place in 1977 and is told in words. Rose's story in 1927 is told entirely in pictures. Ever since his mother died, Ben feels lost. At home with her father, Rose feels alone. When Ben finds a mysterious clue hidden in his mother's room, both children risk everything to find what's missing.
