Book Review - The Invention of Hugo Cabriet

The Invention of Hugo CabretThe 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.

  1. Five stars! This must have been really, really good. I'm going to take a look at this one on Amazon, Linda. There are some children's books that should be enjoyed by adults --- this looks like one of them. Have a great day.
