Book Overview

Don't miss Selznick's other novels in words and pictures, Wonderstruck and The Marvels, which together with The Invention of Hugo Cabret, form an extraordinary thematic trilogy

2008 Caldecott Medal winnerThe groundbreaking debut novel from bookmaking pioneer, Brian Selznick Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks--like the gears of the clocks he keeps--with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station, Hugo's undercover life and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery.With 284 pages of original drawings and combining elements of picture book, graphic novel, and film, Brian Selznick breaks open the novel form to create an entirely new reading experience. Here is a stunning cinematic tour de force from a boldly innovative storyteller and artist.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret was the basis for the film Hugo. I watched the movie and read the book. The book is mostly pictures and has a few pages of text. It may be called experimental fiction. This book is awesome, well- researched, and is a Caldecott award winner. Even though it has over 500 pages, I was able to read it in less than an hour and a half. There are some small differences between Hugo the movie and the book, but they are not significant. A very well thought out and written children's story that is suitable for all ages is what it is.

All of the other viewers have said that the book is enchanting. My son was in love with this book and even dressed up for Halloween. The illustrations are striking. It is based on the true life story of Hugo Cabret, so it is considered historical fiction. You must see the movie if you didn't. The book illustrates what true friendship is. I pick it up and re- read after 4 years. Highly recommended!

   Such a great book with amazing illustrations and creativity
The teacher friend introduced me to this book. I have borrowed it from our school library every year to read to the kids and teach them how to use their imaginations to understand and predict what's happening in the book. The kids love the book and are excited about it. I decided to invest in my own copy and haven't been disappointed.

   Bought this book for our Grandson. He enjoyed reading the book.
The book is readable and enjoyable to read. The book was in the back. We had a book in the school library. It was checked out many times and never had this happen to it. I was excited to give this to our grandson and he will be using it for a book report at school. Not excited to have it fall apart. Can anything be done? Thank you.

If only the illustrations are included, this book is amazing. You have a winner that will delight all ages when you combine it with a great story. I like to look at the detailed illustrations. I have never seen a book like this before. I'm very happy I bought it. I ordered two more Brian Selznick books. Let me know if you found this review helpful to you. I rely on reviews when buying online, and I would like to know if my reviews are helpful. Thanks a lot!

   Amazing illustrations and story that is captivating-
The story is both words and illustrations. It looks like a movie. Every time I look at the illustrations, there is a new detail. They are rendered with only charcoal and graphite. It makes the book feel like you are in a time before color and it enhances the story so much. I will be reading his entire line after I finish.
