The Invention of Hugo CabretThe Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Here’s a story about a boy who loves to tinker with machines. He meets a girl and her grandfather while working the clocks at the train station. An old machine that once belonged to Hugo’s father unlocks the key to a glorious past…or the discovery of Hugo’s thievery.

I thought that since this appeared to be a children’s book, I had no business reading it at all. But I did and was struck by how fascinating the pictures looked and how the story of a French film pioneer was incorporated into the story. This book truly deserves its 5-star rating from me.
