About Brian Selznick

BRIAN SELZNICK’s books have sold millions of copies, garnered countless awards worldwide, and been translated into more than thirty-five languages. He broke open the novel form with his innovative and genre-defying thematic trilogy, beginning with the Caldecott Medal-winning #1 New York Times bestseller The Invention of Hugo Cabret, adapted into Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning movie Hugo. He followed that with the #1 New York Times bestseller Wonderstruck, adapted into the eponymous movie by celebrated filmmaker Todd Haynes with a screenplay by Selznick, and the New York Times bestseller The Marvels. Selznick’s two most recent books for young people, Baby Monkey, Private Eye, an ALA Notable book co-written with his husband, David Serlin, and Kaleidoscope, a New York Times Notable Children’s Book of 2021, were both New York Times bestsellers as well. He also illustrated the twentieth anniversary edition covers of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. Selznick and Serlin divide their time between Brooklyn, New York, and La Jolla, California.
