The Invention of Hugo Cabret

A Book Review By LM

    I recently read The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, and I really liked it. Orphan Hugo Cabret has been living in a Parisian train station ever since his father died in a fire, working as a clock keeper and thief to stay alive. But when he meets a mysterious man whose goddaughter owns a key that fits into his father's last project, an automaton that will draw a picture, Hugo is determined to solve the mystery that his father left behind. Who is Georges Méliès? What is the significance of the automaton's drawing? Will Hugo be able to solve his father's mystery?
