I loved this book and so did my 7 year old. We especially loved the details in the illustrations after Ben meets Rose.

I haven't yet read Wonder Struck but my co-workers enjoyed it and say it is a must-read so I've added it to my list of books I intend to read in 2014.

it is so amazing it has a girl and a boy and it's really cool its like a mystery with the two of them. For e.g. the girl writes something on the peace of paper and when the boy reades it, it does not look the same like it does not have the same words IN IT THERE in different time. I WILL TELL YOU GUYS THAT YOU SHOULD GET THIS BOOK TO READ :)

Okay so we read this book in class with my teacher and I think now everybody in my class has it. i love it read it a million times.

This book is such a success! Its amazing! The plot is so addictive, and the whole story and how it was put together with the Rose in the images and Ben in the story, was just sooo creative and loved it so much! I read it from start to end non-stop. The ending was SUPER AMAZING. This is one of those books i will remember forever along with hugo cabret!!

Ben: Gunflint Lake, Minnesota, June 1977. Rose: Hoboken, New Jersey, October 1927. Ben’s Story – written: Newly orphaned when his mother dies, Ben comes to believe that he has a father, hitherto unknown, living in New York City. When an accident involving a telephone and a bolt of lightning renders him deaf, he sets out for the big city in search of clues to who his father really is. Rose’s Story – seen almost solely in pictures: A seeming prisoner in her own home, Rose too sets out for New York City to see the actress Lillian Mayhew for reasons of her own. The two children both end up in The American Museum of Natural History and both discover something there that will help to give them what they need to solve their own problems. And in that discovery, they will find one another.
