The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

The Invention of Hugo Cabret: A Novel In Words and Pictures by Brian Selznick, 533 pages

The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated book about a twelve year old orphan named Hugo who lives in the train station walls of Paris. Hugo finds himself living alone after his Uncle disappears and dies. Hugo is left to care for all the clocks in the station. When the notebook that belonged to his father disappears, Hugo finds himself befriending Isabelle, the goddaughter of the toyshop owner that he has been stealing from.  This was a beautiful story!
