The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

This awesome book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, is a non-stop adventure of a boy named Hugo who lives in the walls of a train station. This is an exciting and thrilling story about how a little boy has to live alone with no family.  His father died from a fire and when the uncle took Hugo in, the uncle disappeared. So Hugo now lives alone and fixes clocks to stay hidden. But Hugo needs to fix an automaton (robot) because he thinks the automaton will write him a message that comes from his father. This story involves a little girl and an old grumpy man that will lead to the secrets of this mysterious automaton.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick is very good.  It is about a boy named Hugo who lives in the 1930’s as an orphan. In the beginning of the book it becomes very interesting because Hugo goes through a lot of bad stuff.  One thing is that his dad dies in a fire so he lives with his uncle and his uncle goes out one day and never returns. If you like sad and interesting books, I would recommend this book.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret  is not only a good book, but it’s a fast easy read!  This book has pictures which make the book different than all the other books.  It also makes this book unique.  Don’t worry, this book has lots of pages with words too.  The Invention Of Hugo Cabret has a mystery with a twist! Also unexpected things happen.  Hugo always loved to work on clocks with his father but then something happens to their relationship.  Hugo learns how to provide for himself.  This is a realistic fiction book and it is fantastic!  I looked up the movies that Papa George made and they are real!

  1. Two good reviews. I'm surprised neither of you mentioned the drawings in this book. It reminds me of a graphic novel, because the drawings are so much a part of the story. Have either of you seen the movie? It was pretty good, they stuck pretty close to the book.
