This is the Caldecott Award winner with the most pages ever. The detailed pictures are fascinating. Brian Selznick's inventive artwork carries the bulk of the story line.

Beth - this is definitely on my to-read list!
Has anyone heard the audiobook? How did they do that?
Loved it! There is a book about automatons.
I was curious about the audiobook too, since a large part of the story is drawings. The audiobook does the same thing with sounds. It starts with the brief intrduction then you year a movie projector start and then sounds of morning, birds chirping & music. Eventually you hear city noises, then a train station, footsteps, etc. It is like the soundtrack to a movie just as the book is like frames from a movie.
The adults I suggested this book to came back to tell me they also loved it.
Wow! Sounds like a pretty neat audiobook! I'll be looking for it!
EVPL does have this title as a Play-a-way audiobook. I love those little MP3 players. It is handy to wear since it has a lanyard attached.
