I've got book 1 in the Maze Runner trilogy in my classroom library - it is a great book with lots of action, twists and turns. I read this book when it first came out and had to wait for the 2nd and 3rd books to come out - you can get the 2nd and 3rd books from the library now! Happy reading!

Teaching with Brian Selznick | Scholastic.com

Check out the Brian Selznik author biography and video! He's a great writer. I loved his book The Invention of Hugo Cabret - I've actually seen the animatron that he bases this story on. It is on display at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. If you haven't read any of Selznik's books, check one out today! See Mrs. T. in the library!!Teaching with Brian Selznick | Scholastic.com:
