The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a unique delightful book into the world of a train station and a young boy who inhabits it. All alone in life and facing mistreatment, Hugo shares with us a world of enchantment through his ability to work with his hands and bring an automaton back to life.
This book is a treasure of beautiful black and white drawings that fill the mind with the action of Hugo. For both children and adults, a clever trip into the minds of creative people of the past.
A one-of-a-kind book that you not only "read", but experience.
