Brian Selznick has illustrated books like The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins, Walt Whitman: Words for America, and When Marian Sang, and has both written and illustrated a few books, too-- including the innovative novel of words and pictures, The Invention of Hugo Cabret (voted Y2C2's favorite book of 2006-2007 [and YCC's 2nd-favorite book]).
