Teaser Tuesday: The Marvels


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly post challenge hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Each week, I’ll be posting a teaser from my current read!

This week, I’m doing something a little different for Teaser Tuesday. I haven’t started reading The Marvels yet, but I’ve pre-ordered it on Amazon and I can’t wait for my copy to arrive in September.

This week, Brian Selznick released a book trailer for his latest middle grade book, The Marvels. As all my friends know, Selznick’s two previous books (Wonderstruck and The Invention of Hugo Cabret) are two of my favorite historical fiction reads of all time.

The trailer for The Marvels doesn’t disappoint. Taking place from the 1700s to the 1990s, it seems like The Marvels will be another great historical fiction read for 4th-6th graders.

Teaser from the book trailer of The Marvels:

“Joseph was lost. Somewhere far away the headlights of a car swept through the snowy night. He stopped to rest beneath a low passageway off an ancient cobblestone street. A single rusting street lamp flickered nearby. He put down his heavy suitcase, dried off his glasses, and coughed. Joseph was shocked he’d made it all the way to London without being caught. But then again, the headmaster at St. Anthony’s was probably relieved he was gone…”

The full book trailer is available to watch here:

        No… I have it, and I really want to read it! I’m trying to finish a few “commitment” books first, and then read The Marvels when I can really enjoy it.
