Brian Selznick is the author of the new book Big Tree, as well as many other books for children, including the Invention of Hugo Cabret, winner of the Caldecott Medal and basis for the award-winning movie, Hugo, directed by Martin Scorsese.

Brian's latest book, Big Tree, was inspired by an idea from Steven Spielberg, and follows the story of two sycamore seeds that hope to one day set down roots and become big trees. When a fire forces them to leave their mama tree prematurely, they find themselves catapulted into the unknown. Alone and unprepared, they must use their wits and imagination to navigate a dangerous world filled with dinosaurs, meteors, and volcanoes.
