Brian Selznick’s books have garnered countless accolades worldwide and have been translated into more than 35 languages. He is the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of the No. 1 New York Times best-sellers “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” adapted into Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning movie “Hugo”; and “Wonderstruck,” adapted by celebrated filmmaker Todd Haynes, with a screenplay by Selznick; as well as New York Times best-sellers “The Marvels” and “Baby Monkey, Private Eye” (co-written with Dr. David Serlin). In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the U.S. publication of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” Scholastic will publish new covers of the Harry Potter series illustrated by Selznick under its Arthur A. Levine imprint.
