The Invention of Hugo Cabret
The Invention of Hugo Cabret A Novel in Words and Pictures By Selznick, Brian Book - 2007

I had this book recommended to me by a friend and picked it up rather uncertainly! It was huge! Then I looked inside and discovered some great artwork that made up quite a large part of the book.

I really liked this story. It was about a young boy named Hugo Cabret who loves to fix things, especially clocks. The museum burns down and Hugo’s father is killed. Hugo goes to live with his Uncle and meets a girl named Isabelle. He befriends her and starts out on a magical sequence of events …

My favourite character was Hugo because he was very brave and yet a little mischievous. He has a main purpose in life, which is to fix his father’s Automan, which was very precious to his father.

I rate this book a 10 out of 10 because there were very clever drawings telling you every detail of what was going on, which really added something to the story.
