A ship. A garden. A library. In Kaleidoscope, the incomparable Brian Selznick presents the story of two people bound to each other through time and space, memory and dreams.

At the centre of their relationship is a mystery about the nature of grief and love which will look different to each reader.

Kaleidoscope is a feat of storytelling that illuminates how even the wildest tales can help us in the hardest times.
