Brian Selznick's six favorite children's books

Brian Selznick has written and illustrated several award-winning children's books, including The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which inspired the multi-Oscar-winning film Hugo.

On of his six favorite children's books, as told to The Week magazine:
The Juniper Tree translated by Lore Segal and Randall Jarrell

The definitive edition of the Grimms' fairy tales, accompanied by some of Maurice Sendak's most brilliant and haunting images. Each picture is filled with strange allusions and unforgettable characters. You'll feel like you've never heard (or seen) these stories before.
