Some brief overview of book

Because Alonzo King was born on Halloween, he has always loved monsters. But no one would ever guess that he lives in a haunted house with a graveyard out back, communicates with the dead, turns into a six-armed, slime-covered creature, or is a walking encyclopedia on horror films! However, when The Beast arrives, not even Alonzo can track it down.

Will he be able to solve the mystery of the creature stalking his town and make his dream of becoming The Boy of a Thousand Faces come true? pfoil hed been given to keep him out of trouble. Even in kindergarten, Selznick recalled in an interview with Scholastic Books, I remember drawing and having the other kids gather around because they liked what I was drawing. He took art classes after school and studied at The Rhode Island School of Design.

Although he thought he wanted a career in theatrical set design, after graduation Selznick decided he would like to try illustrating childrens books. He went to work for a prominent (now defunct) Manhattan bookstore called Eeyores, where he learned about the business and put his art to use painting the windows for holidays and special events. Around this time, he wrote and illustrated his first childrens book, The Houdini Box.

His manager and mentor at Eeyores helped find him a publisher. The book came out in 1991, while Selznick was still working at the store. Since then, Selznick has illustrated many other award-winning childrens books, including Andrew Clementss Frindle, Pam Muñoz Ryans When Marian Sang, and Barbara Kerleys The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins.

But his crowning masterpiece is an ambitious project entirely of his own creation, a groundbreaking 500-page tour de force that combines the elements of a picture book, graphic novel, and film. Published in 2007, The Invention of Hugo Cabret follows the adventures of an orphan who secretly lives in the walls of a Paris train station, as he tries to complete a mysterious invention left by his father. Intricate, innovative, and utterly spellbinding, the story was nominated for a National Book Award and received the coveted Caldecott Medal, Americas top prize for childrens illustration.

Selznick divides his time between Brooklyn, New York, and San Diego, California. Good To Know Selznick is a first cousin, once removed, of iconic Hollywood producer David O. Selznick The Invention of Hugo Cabret is the first full-length novel to receive the Caldecott Medal.
