A Christmas Carol (P.J.Lynch) and The Marvels (Brian Selznick)

A beautifully illustrated version of A Christmas Carol - click on the link below to see more illustrations from the book

Also...I love Brian Selznick's illustrations and my first experience with him was his book "The Invention of Hugo Cabaret" which became a wonderful movie eventually. His black and white illustrations basically told the entire story with some pages of text...but I absolutely loved his drawings and sketches and ability to tell a story mainly with those alone.

He has a new book now called "The Marvels" and it is also done in the same manner. I can already imagine this being turned into a movie as well one day.

Here are a couple of trailers about the movie to give you an idea and a peek at some of the illustrations.
